Hannibal Johnson talked about the 100th anniversary of the Tulsa, Oklahoma, race massacre on May 31, 1921. That day racial tensions in that city led to an armed mob of white men marching on the city’s predominantly African American Greenwood District. The arrest of a young Black man for his interactions with a white woman in a downtown office building triggered the unrest. Over the next day, the neighborhood known as “Black Wall Street” would be the scene of shootings, looting, and arson. While official totals put the number killed at 36, historians now believe the toll was as high as 300. Thirty-five blocks of the city were left in charred ruins. American History TV and Washington Journal were LIVE on May 31 to mark the anniversary and explore the consequences of that day’s events. Mr. Johnson, a local author and attorney, joined from the Tulsa Historical Society and Museum. His latest book is Black Wall Street 100: An American City Grapples With Its Historical Racial Trauma. close
