Remembering Black Wall Street: The Tulsa Race Massacre
December 12 @ 7:00 pm
In Tulsa’s Greenwood District, “Black Wall Street” was a thriving area of Black-owned businesses and commerce until June 1921, when a white mob burned much of it to the ground and an estimated 300 residents were killed. One of the worst incidents of racial violence in American history, the Tulsa Race Massacre followed years of anti-Black prejudice, terrorism, and riots around the country. Learn more about the Greenwood District, the aftermath of the massacre, and efforts to memorialize the victims and recognize survivors and their descendants.
This program is presented in conjunction with our current special exhibition, Black Citizenship in the Age of Jim Crow.
