From multi-Emmy and Peabody Award winning directors Stanley Nelson and Marco Williams comes Tulsa Burning: The 1921 Race Massacre, the story of what has been called 'the single worst incident of racial violence in American history' and a current day look at its lasting legacy today. In the early part of the 20th century, the Greenwood section of Tulsa, Oklahoma was a thriving centre of African American business and culture. Black families flocked there, leaving behind the oppression and violence of the American South. Together, they built a self-reliant economy and a vibrant, peaceful community. On May 31st, 1921, a white mob rampaged through Greenwood, murdering men, women, and children, looting property and burning 40 square blocks to the ground. Nearly 10,000 people were left homeless. More than 300 were killed.
