Memorial Day weekend marked the 100th anniversary of the Tulsa Race Massacre, one of the most deadly acts of race-based violence in American history. Despite the massacre’s tragic significance this piece of American history was nearly forgotten. The events that surrounded Tulsa’s Black Wall Street served to honor the victims of the massacre and their descendants. The events which included music festivals, art installations, and symposiums not only helped bring the massacre back into the collective conscious but was also a celebration of Black pride.
