Reflections on the Tulsa Massacre of 1921

June 16 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

REFLECTIONS ON THE TULSA MASSACRE OF 1921, ONE HUNDRED YEARS LATER: The League of Women Voters of Northern Fairfield County will present a webinar featuring WCSU Adjunct Instructor of History and Non-Western Cultures Danielle King for a discussion about “Reflections on the Tulsa Massacre of 1921, One Hundred Years Later” at 7 p.m.

The prosperous Black community of Greenwood in Tulsa, Oklahoma, was known as the “Negro Wall Street of America.”  Resentful of the success achieved by descendants of formerly enslaved Black people, along with allegations that a Black man had assaulted a white woman, Greenwood was violently eradicated physically and historically.  On the centennial of this heinous event that has been willfully forgotten and largely suppressed, the massacre, destruction, and legacy shall be uncovered and explored.
