HBO and the Atlantic have teamed up to create a digital comic focused on the massacre of Black Wall Street. Dubbed The Massacre of Black Wall Street, the comic retells the story of the Tulsa Oklahoma neighborhood Greedwood. A prosperous collective of black-owned homes and businesses. In 1921, white rioters stormed Greenwood, killed over 300 residents, left more homeless and ransacked the neighborhood.
The new HBO series Watchmen revolves around the fallout from that horrific day. The comic is a collaboration between HBO and The Atlantic with writing by Natalie Chang, Illustration by Clayton Henry and colored by Marcelo Maiolo.
