Chicago Entrepreneur Carries On Family Legacy A Century After Tulsa Race Massacre

Nearly a century ago, a white mob attacked businesses, homes and residents in the predominantly Black Greenwood neighborhood in Tulsa, Okla. Historians estimate as many as 300 people died. Hundreds of businesses and homes were looted and burned down.

One of the businesses destroyed belonged to the great-grandfather of Keewa Nurullah, a fourth-generation Chicago entrepreneur. Reset talks to Nurullah about her family history and how she’s trying to keep that legacy alive through her business in the South Loop.
