JOHN LEGEND TO PRODUCE SHOW ABOUT “BLACK WALL STREET”

Grammy award winning singer John Legend is set to produce a TV series based on “Black Wall Street” a wealthy and affluent neighborhood in 1920s Tulsa,Oklahoma that was burned down in a race riot leaving 300 Black people dead. Long forgotten and un mentioned in American history this is one of many neighborhoods that existed long before the drug and crime riddled ones we see today.  Already being a part of projects such as “Underground” and “Selma” John Legend has become apart of the many with the gut to tell our forgotten stories of wealth in America.
