Join us this Friday, May 7 at 1pm PT / 4pm ET for a live discussion marking the centenary of:
The 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre
The 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre, which occurred in an area known as “Black Wall Street,” is not mentioned in most American history books, but it is widely regarded as one of the most terrifying events of racial violence to occur in the US. Armed, white mobs murdered hundreds of Blacks and set fire to a prosperous Black area, the Greenwood District, both displacing and economically devastating thousands of residents. This centenary event will feature a lively discussion from a diverse group of panelists who will explore this history, its enduring impacts, and reparations.
The event will be livestreamed on our website here with live captioning below the video. We encourage everyone to submit questions for the speakers using the chat box.
