On May 31, 1921, an incensed mob of white citizens and civil authorities stormed the thriving African American community of Greenwood in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The mob burned countless buildings to the ground in a siege that took the lives of an estimated 300 Black people. Dr. Karlos K. Hill's, Associate Professor and Chair of the Clara Luper Department of African and African American Studies at the University of Oklahoma, book The 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre: A Photographic History, illustrates through photographs and oral testimony the painful, too long untold story of this race massacre. Listen to a conversation with Dr. Hill about this dark episode of American history and why it matters today.
