This past week marks the anniversary of the 1921 Tulsa Race Riot. Where can I learn more about what happened?

The Tulsa Race Riot, which began on May 31, 1921, is a chapter of our city’s history about which many people, including a lot of native Tulsans, know very little, despite the fact that it resulted in the deaths of hundreds of people and the destruction of an entire section of town. The library, through our African American Resource Center (or AARC), has compiled a list of resources about the event and the conditions that caused it. These items include a number of books, periodicals and electronic media, as well as educator kits and links to other local agencies.
