05/31/2021

Today marks the centennial anniversary of the Tulsa race massacre. Known as #BlackWallStreet, the Greenwood section of #Tulsa was the wealthiest Black community in the United States. According to a bipartisan Commission, on May 31, 1921, the city conspired with a white mob against the Black citizens destroying more than 35 square blocks and leaving about 10,000 Blacks homeless. The Real and personal property damage was estimated at $2.25M (~$32.65M in 2020). The event remains one of the worst incidents of racial violence in U.S. history.

For decades, there was a deliberate effort to cover up this tragedy. However, according to the State Department of Education, it has required the topic in Oklahoma history classes since 2000 and U.S. history classes since 2004, and the incident has been included in Oklahoma history books since 2009. No one was charged in the riot; there have been no reparations to date. #TulsaRaceMassacre #GreenwoodMassacre #AmericanHistory #StopTheHateAndEducate
