Today marks 100 years since the 1921 Tulsa Massacre, where as many as 300 Black Americans were killed by white mobs in ‘Black Wall Street.’ This tragic moment in American history is all too relevant today. pic.twitter.com/CxUEKFoFR8
It's been 100 years since hundreds of Black people in Tulsa-Greenwood were murdered in a racist, state-sponsored attack and Black Wall Street was burned to the ground. Reparations have yet to be paid to survivors and their families.
this is so important. the "Black Wall Street" narrative can sometimes warp the condemnation of white supremacist riots with a romanticization of Black capitalism. White violence was specific and random, pervasive and sporadic, against black wealth, churches, co-ops, and bodies. https://t.co/N3wUyFWFKm
Yes, how dare the Tulsa massacre survivors ask for 10 percent of the $30 MILLION raised by a committee that wants to display them onstage at an event ABOUT THEIR SUFFERING so it will seem credible and they can raise MORE money for a tourist museum... https://t.co/4y1EonjvKe
100 years ago today, mobs of white residents descended on Black Wall Street in Tulsa, Oklahoma. I visited the site of the Tulsa Race Massacre in 2019, and I’m fighting to make sure we confront this history of racist violence head on. pic.twitter.com/rC38PYWYN0
ON THIS DAY: 100 years ago, 300 people died in one of the biggest attacks of racial violence and domestic terrorism in American history. The 1921 Black Wall Street Massacre destroyed over 35 blocks of a predominantly black neighborhood in Tulsa, Oklahoma. https://t.co/yMMNEdp5mNpic.twitter.com/EvqZ9cj3Ru
