I believe this article profferes another myth that is frequented on this subject that " the area before the riot was called the "Black Wallstreet". From what I have read it was after the riot, when the area was rebuilt, became more prosperous than it was before the riot, that it then came to be known as the Black Wallstreet. When we look at the area today and see abandoned buildings and vacant lots its easy to assume that those are the result of the race riot. They are not. If what we are searching for and trying to honor is the truth of history it would be wise to consider the whole of that history and not leave out parts that create a false impression and even leave out important lessons. After the riots, the area was rebuilt. Its important to know what happened after that which cause the area to be "destroyed" even more effectively than the riots had managed to do. That would be another important lesson worth learning, that should not be left out of the Greenwood story."
