​The feature film 1921 is inspired by the true events so horrific
they’ve been buried in our country’s history ever since.
A black community struggles to maintain peace and pleasure while its leaders investigate a hate crime, but when another black man is falsely accused of something else, the KKK steps in to destroy America’s most prosperous black community.
President Andrew Jackson’s Indian Removal Act forced Black and Native American’s to seek a new homeland after a torturous journey along what became the infamous Trail of Tears. They settled in what is now known as Oklahoma and when this region became a statehood, once again the oppressed faced being driven from their homeland.
The year is 1921 and in the 14 years since Oklahoma has become a state, Tulsa has been built up by the oil industry. The town is divided by a railroad track on one side of the tracks is a primarily white community whose interest lies more in building up the KKK than maintaining their oil industry and the other side is America’s wealthiest and most desirable Black and Native community; a place so prosperous and self-sustaining it is dubbed Black Wall Street.
Our story focuses on the individuals that make this community thrive and jive and how they broke down the barriers of race against all odds. Though the setting is contentious and a constant struggle to live within the racial divide, the people of Black Wall Street know how to balance hard work with love and laughter and music.
  There’s Old Man Rusty, the only member still alive from the Trail of Tears, he doles out rhythmic advice to the young and old, especially as it pertains to matters of the heart and the local gals known as the ‘3 Degrees.’ Rusty is particularly interested in the bright and beautiful, Mary Smith, who is well on her way to taking over Rusty’s store as the town doctor – that is if she doesn’t get too distracted by Martin’s advances. As an attorney, Martin spends everyday in court battling blatant injustices against blacks to no avail. His interest in Mary becomes a gossip driven comedy thanks to the town mouth, Rochelle; Mary’s best friend. Rochelle goes about thinking she’s ‘all that and more’ with her imaginary band backing her up along the way.

  Our story focuses on the individuals that make this community thrive and jive and how they broke down the barriers  of race against all odds. Though the setting is contentious and a constant struggle to live within   the racial divide, the people of Black Wall Street       know how to balance hard work with love and laughter     and music.

  The biggest obstacle Mary has, that she doesn’t think is a problem, is that she
is being raised by a white couple on the other side of the tracks. Try as they 
might the Smiths can never fully understand what it means to be a black 
person in the south. Fortunately, Mr. Smith’s business has Martin defending 
him and as we get to know who can be trusted on the white side, one member 
of the KKK is clearly conflicted as he secretly helps Martin in his work. Those
who can’t be trusted make everyday life a constant struggle. As a black man’s disappearance has leaders searching for answers, members of the KKK use an innocent misunderstanding between a black man and woman as fuel for the fire that starts one of the deadliest occurrence of racial violence in United States history.
  A riot so horrendous that it would take 90 years before it would be taught in Tulsa public schools, and remains absent in many history textbooks across the United States.
