Full Book Description:
The Tulsa Race Massacre happened between May 31 and June 1, 1921, when a white mob attacked the predominantly Black Greenwood neighborhood of Tulsa, Oklahoma. To this day, this is one of the worst incidents of racial violence in American history—and one of the most forgotten. This book will help kids understand what happened on that day in 1921 and encourage them to learn from our past and keep history from repeating itself.
