The optimism of prosperity is broken. Racial tensions at an all-time high and the fall broke the promised land. The 1921 Tulsa Massacre was one of the largest tragedies that have ever befall the United States. For nearly 100 years, our history has attempted to hide the blood of those men and women. Innocent families and legacies forever changed. In this episode, we are sitting down with Scott Ellsworth to discuss the history behind the innocent. Ellsworth is the author of Death in a Promised Land: The Tulsa Race Riot of 1921. While also looking into how the events have shaped modern-day Greenwood, as well as how the shadow of the massacre has impacted the generations that have come since 1921. For the latter portion of this podcast, we’re be sitting down with Adjoa Aiyetoro, a member of the Reparations Coordinating Committee, for Greenwood. All this and more on this important, yet heartbreaking, episode of Victims and Villains
