This month marks 100 years since one of the most horrific events in our nation’s history. On May 31st, 1921, a horde of white residents attacked the Greenwood District in Tulsa, Oklahoma. They destroyed 35 blocks of the district that was known as Black Wall Street and the surrounding neighborhood, home to an affluent African American community. Historians estimate anywhere from 75 to 300 people were killed. Thousands more were injured. Yet, it’s still one of the least well-known major historical events in U.S. history. The Tulsa Race Massacre was intentionally covered up and today, it’s still not taught in many of our schools.
