One say if you are looking for information

 you gotta Look long and far for it

And so I did Because america wanted to hide this

From Us from the world and that is 

The truth about Tulsa Greenwood


It’s been around a day  since I last spoke to The director

 at the New black wall street in ATL, Georgia 

He Told me about The burning and massacre of black wall street in tulsa Greenwood

I was surprised since I never knew that this ever happened before  

I had to sit down for a second after he told me

I never learned about this in class  ever in my life so far

I thought I had learned everything 

there is to know about black history

But I was wrong 

and the school district is not so good about teaching children this

Why teach kids about almost everything else about black history

 but skip over this

Why would they want to hide the black community wealth

 that we had before

Is it scary for them to tell the truth

 or do they just want to bury it 

and act like nothing happened

I just wanted to know more

Now that I know about this
