On this date in 1921, 300 people died in the Tulsa Race Massacre, mostly Black, at the hands of a white-American mob.
One of the worst race riots in U.S. history lasted two days. Hundreds of people were injured, and over 1000 Black-owned homes and businesses were destroyed. On the 75th anniversary of the riot, the city extended a spirit of reconciliation through the dedication of a black granite memorial in Greenwood, the neighborhood most affected by the conflict.
The Oklahoma Legislature is considering reparations for victims and survivors, and the OWN network created a mini-series for television in 2018.
