Lee Camp, host of Redacted Tonight, discusses the Tulsi Massacre and other black Wall Streets in the United States. Sabby and Lee focus on the lack of education about black wall streets in the education system. 

During the period of reconstruction, some black communities were doing well financially. It was the one time where the black dollar continued to turn in the black community. Black people in these communities had their own businesses, schools, churches etc...But every time these black wall streets were established, they burned down. 

Why weren't students taught about Tulsa in school? Why is black wall street missing from our history books? Is it possible that the school curriculum did not want the American people to know that black people were able to establish wealth in black communities? Is it possible that the school system did not want people to know that white people burned down those communities?
