Greenwood is known as the Cotton Capital of the World. Historically, Native Americans and Europeans were the earliest settlers of Greenwood. However, currently, majority or over 60 percent of the population is composed of blacks. This is because Greenwood has a lot of cotton fields and owners purchased hundreds of slaves to till the land. Eventually, former slaves were freed and bought their own lands in Greenwood.
