On June 1st 1921, 300 lives were lost, 6,000 Africans in America were detained, over 150 businesses were destroyed. Following this tragic event, the most successful self-sustaining "Black Wall Street" community was left devastated with all of its glory shattered. The money, influence, and respect garnered by Black Wall Street at that time was admirable. So much so, many attempts have been made to resurrect Black Wall Street. After digging through history and looking at other models, we have a solution. Join us in the discussion!

Where the Long Tail Ends is a website dedicated to finding old, obscure and possibly awful films that are adrift in the sea of pop culture. Helping to fulfill that mission are the three podcasts offered by Where the Long Tail Ends. Spoiler Alert!, which is dedicated to reviewing newer films that catch our interest, the Cabin in the Woods Film Festival Podcast in which Matt forces Angela Fabbrini to watch a horror film and then verbally dodge her rage and of course, High and Low (Brow), which is the signature podcast for the website. It is a themed podcast where Matt Gamble and James Gillham discuss everything under the sun, and sometimes even get around to talking about movies.
