In 1921, the city of Tulsa, Oklahoma erupted in racial violence that resulted in a death toll that officials at the time placed at around 30. Historians and others have long acknowledged the cost in human life was actually somewhere between 200 and 300 dead, almost entirely black, over two days of riot and murder. The violence also resulted in the destruction by arson of much of the segregated black business community. The Oklahoma state legislature is now holding hearings on this too-little-known chapter in U.S. history, part of a legislative process that may end in some, much-delayed restitution to the victims of the riots, their families and survivors — a move similar to Florida’s payments to the victims of the Rosewood massacre in that state.
