REQUIEM FOR THE MASSACRE A Black History on the Conflict, Hope and Fallout of the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre

by | Read by RJ Young

History • 11.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Author/podcaster RJ Young narrates his own work with focused intensity as he deftly recounts the harrowing events of the June 1, 1921, Tulsa Race Massacre, in which dozens of Black men were killed and thousands displaced. More than 40 square blocks of African American homes, businesses, schools, and churches were burned to the ground. These events serve as a jumping off point to discuss the history of American racism, Young's own experiences growing up in Tulsa, and the state of race relations today. The listener will sense the hurt and anger in Young's voice as he describes how his neighborhood was the site of one of the worst organized attacks on Black people in history and notes that the massive attack was never mentioned in school. Young feels it's time for a change and explains why. B.P. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2024]
