The book’s account, seen through the eyes of a fictional reporter, focuses on the Greenwood section of Tulsa, Okla., which was called “Black Wall Street” because of its economic success. The riot completely razed Greenwood, destroying the lives of its 10,000 residents.
Story’s directing credits include the two “Think Like a Man” movies, “Fantastic Four,” and “Barbershop.” He’s directing and executive producing Showtime’s upcoming comedy series “White Famous,” based on Jamie Foxx’s personal experiences.
Story is repped by UTA. Kubasik is repped by Zero Gravity and Rob Szymanski of Eclipse Law. The news was first reported by Deadline Hollywood.
