IHC Regeneration Talk by Scott Ellsworth: The Tulsa Race Massacre: Causes, Cover Up, and the Fight for the Past

May 12, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

The 1921 Tulsa race massacre was the worst single incident of racial violence in American history. But for decades its very existence was denied. Official records went missing, incriminating articles were torn out of bound volumes of old newspapers, and researchers even had their lives threatened. Award-winning author and historian Scott Ellsworth, author of The Ground Breaking: An American City and Its Search for Justice, unpacks the story of the massacre and the challenges it presents for racial justice today.
