James Hirsch discussed his book, Riot and Remembrance: The Tulsa Race War and Its Legacy, published by Houghton Mifflin.

The book investigates the previously suppressed race riot in Tulsa’s Greenwood section. On May 31, 1921, thousands of white Tulsa residents, accompanied by the National Guard, killed as many as 300 people as they looted and burned the affluent Black suburb. The rioters went on to confine 6,000 of Greenwood’s inhabitants to detention camps.

Mr. Hirsch discussed how and why the confrontation happened and how this little-known incident has shaped the community over the past 80 years. After his presentation, he answered questions from members of the audience. close
