Greenwood is named after the historic Black community in Tulsa, Oklahoma, that is referred to as "Black Wall Street." Greenwood was a thriving business district that served as a pillar of hope. In 1921, it was burned to the ground in a deadly massacre that crippled the community.
Paying homage to the spirit of "Black Wall Street", Atlanta rapper and political activist Killer Mike has launched a new digital bank (Greenwood Bank) in partnership with Atlanta civil rights icon Ambassador Andrew Young and media executive, Ryan Glover.
