Lebron James will produce an inside look into the rise and fall of ‘Black Wallstreet’ in a new documentary.

In partnership with CNN Films, the Dreamland: The Rise and Fall of Black Wall Street will follow the events leading up to the Tulsa Massacre of 1921. In collaboration with LeBron James’ SpringHill production company. Directed by Salima Koroma, the Greenwood District of Tulsa, Oklahoma, will be ground zero for the upcoming presentation. Archival media, contemporary interviews, and narrated elements will reconstruct the history of that fateful day in 1921.  More of a concern is the lack of journalism surrounding the death and disruption of the predominatly black community.

“With the lack of historic journalism around ‘Black Wall Street’ and the Tulsa Massacre of 1921, we are honored to be partnered with CNN, which has a long-standing record of credible and groundbreaking journalism,” said Jamal Henderson, the chief operating officer of SpringHill. James, the Los Angeles Lakers superstar, will serve as an executive producer for the project.

With the use of official public records, the Tulsa Race Massacre has long remained under-documented in the media and education. Dreamland documentary, possibly a docu-series, will to turn back the pages on the event and expose an in-depth reveal of America’s past.
