It was May, 30th 1921 and on this day Dick Rowland was on his way to the Drexel building. Which was mostly closed for the Memorial day holiday but the building had something that very few buildings in downtown Tulsa had. A colored restroom on the top floor, as Rowland walked toward the elevator. It was being operated by a 17 year old white woman by the name Sarah Page and he would step into history.
