Snippet Transcripts
people around the country are remembering a tragic day in american history. Exactly 100 years ago, the Tulsa race massacre happened, A white mob stormed a successful black economic hub in the Greenwood neighborhood of Tulsa Oklahoma that was often referred to as Black Wall Street. The mob rioted for two days with the help of local police officers. They randomly shot and killed black people and torched 35 blocks of black-owned businesses, churches, homes, a Library, a school and a hospital. In the end, Historians say as many as 300 people were killed, although at this point different records show different numbers. No one was ever charged in their deaths and Black Wall Street was never rebuilt. Insurance companies denied most of the black victims claims, so thousands were left homeless. Flash forward to this week and President biden issued a proclamation calling for a day of remembrance. He called on americans to quote recommit to the work of rooting out systemic racism across our country. And today the president will visit Tulsa. He's going to tour the Greenwood Cultural Center and meet with surviving members of the community.
