Known as “Black Wall Street,” the Greenwood neighborhood of Tulsa, Oklahoma, is home to two very different teenagers. A follower of W. E. B. Du Bois, Isaiah, the town troublemaker, believes Black people should stand up and claim their place as equals. Angel, the goody-goody church girl, supports Booker T. Washington’s views, believing Black people should rise without conflict. Strangers at first, the two grow closer while working the same after-school job. But on May 31, 1921, everything changes when a vicious white mob destroys Greenwood, killing hundreds and displacing thousands. Told in alternating perspectives, Angel of Greenwood sheds new light on a nearly forgotten piece of American history.
