Leave it to the residents of Greenwood to set the standard for night life back in 1920. Not just nightlife, but life as a whole. Greenwood was actually better off economically than some of the white areas of Tulsa.

Oklahoma only had two airports… In Greenwood, there were around six black families that owned their own planes

Greenwood continued proper until the Tulsa race riot of 1921, in which white residents massacred as many as 300 black residents, injuring hundreds more, and razed the neighborhood within hours. The riot was one of the most devastating massacres in the history of U.S. race relations, destroying the once thriving Greenwood community.
