Fringe 2022 - Top Ten - #6 - Black Wall Street: Dreamland Theatre – Doc Woods & Friends

On May 31, 1921 in Tulsa, Oklahoma audiences gathered at Dreamland Theatre to watch a screening of "The Green-Eyed Monster" when the show is interrupted with news of the impending lynching of a Black man.

I’m embarrassed to say how little I was taught about history in my educational life growing up.  I only learned about the Tulsa race massacre a few years ago.  So if a Fringe show like Black Wall Street: Dreamland Theatre is touching on that piece of history, hard as it may be to watch, I’m putting it on the list.  I also recognize the name of one of the actors in the ensemble, Charla Marie Bailey, which signals to me the audience will be in good hands.
