Tulsa Race Massacre commemorated 100 years after the terror

World Today

100 years ago, the arrest of a Black man for allegedly assaulting a White woman sparked perhaps the worst episode of racial violence in U.S. history.

Hundreds of Blacks were killed in the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre, an event that was suppressed by the city of Tulsa, Oklahoma, for many years. The event is being remembered there now.
