“The Tulsa Massacre is the deadliest outbreak of white terrorist violence against a black community in American history.”

Dr. Karlos K. Hill, Foreword to 1921: Reporting a Massacre by Randy Krehbiel

Tulsa and State of Oklahoma officials aided White mobs in a pogrom of Greenwood. The Red Cross in 1921 estimated 300 Black people were killed. More than one hundred businesses, schools, churches, a hospital, and 1,256 homes were looted and burned to ash and rubble. For 100 years no reparations have ever been paid by city, county, or state to victims, survivors, and descendants of Greenwood.
