Postcard - Tulsa Race Massacre Centennial


On May 31-June 1, 1921, white mobs, many of them deputized and armed by city officials, attacked Black residents, homes and businesses in Tulsa, Oklahoma. As many as 300 people were killed, 35 city blocks were destroyed, including thousands of homes and other buildings. The mob targeted the prosperous Black community of Greenwood in a vicious act of white supremacy. The resilient survivors of the massacre rebuilt their community in the following decades and Greenwood today is again being renewed after decades of neglect.

Created in consultation with the Tulsa Race Massacre Centennial Commission.
