Greenwood Is Still Burning

Stand With the Survivors and Descendants of the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre.

Before the Tulsa Race Massacre of 1921, the Greenwood District in Tulsa, Oklahoma—known as Black Wall Street—was the most prosperous, organized and successful Black community in United States history.

Then, overnight from May 31st to June 1st, a white mob of several thousand Tulsans attacked the Greenwood district, destroying the neighborhood.

The massacre, which was encouraged, sanctioned and led by Tulsa Police, the Tulsa Chamber of Commerce, the Tulsa County Sheriff's Department and the National Guard, resulted in 35 city blocks laid to charred ruin. Hundreds of Black residents were killed, and thousands were injured and displaced—with families, and the lives they once knew, shattered.

In an intentional act designed to bury and whitewash the event, city officials wiped all evidence of the massacre from their records. Many still do not know the true full history of what happened to Greenwood in 1921.

The road to justice, healing and repair needs your voice and support.
