A Centennial Exploration of the 1921 Race Massacre: Although rarely mentioned in textbooks, there is no question that the Tulsa Race Massacre was one of the most horrific incidents of racial violence in American history. As the country continues to reflect on the shocking murders and arson that took place from May 31-June 1, 1921 and considers more recent incidents of social injustice like the killing of George Floyd last May, a new documentary Tulsa: The Fire and the Forgotten, directed by Jonathan Silvers, examines this deadly assault on humanity on the 100th anniversary of the crime.
