TC had taken a book into school on the first day of Year Five. It was one of only two books he owned – although the other one was a secret. This one he had stolen from a plastic crate outside a charity shop during the summer holidays. It was called The Supernatural and was full of grainy black-and-white photographs showing pots and pans sent flying through old-fashioned kitchens by poltergeists, cheery adventurers waving from the steps of planes that had later disappeared into thin air and religious statues weeping tears of human blood.

I liked the book and it child-freindly version of the Greenwood aka Black Wall Street Riots. I liked this particular book becasue it told that the district rebuilt itself with a few years and remained a successful Black financial district up until the end of segregation in the late 60-70s. One drawback to this book was that the author concluded the story with the little boy in whom's eyes the story is told through just forgives the fact their community was destroyed, people murdered, homes looted, and men placed in internment camps and he said nothing about demanding justice. That is where the story failed for me. It made no mention of the fact the survivors still have never recieved justice for the tragedy they suffered at the hands of the local police and militia. They deputized criminals who looted and burned the Greenwood district and actually dropped bombs on the district. They waged full fledged war on this community and the story ends without any mention of the injustice and need for reparations. Other than that the book is great for children.
