Tulsa Rising - how does a city reconcile with its racist past?

This is the story of a city wrestling with its history and – maybe – forging a better future. On May 31 and June 1, 1921, Tulsa became the site of a brutal race massacre when a white mob destroyed its Black Wall Street business district. Now, Tulsa is commemorating the centennial. “Tulsa Rising” explores the painful, legacy of this event, but also the hope rising as a new generation begins to process the spirit of Black Wall Street.
