A powerful look at the Tulsa Race Massacre, one of the worst incidents of racial violence in our nation’s history. The book traces the history of African Americans in Tulsa’s Greenwood district—also known as Black Wall Street—and chronicles the devastation that occurred in 1921, when a white mob attacked the prosperous Black community. This picture book sensitively introduces young readers to this tragedy and concludes with a call for a better future.
