Tulsa Race Massacre: 100 years later | NewsNOW from FOX

Back in 1921 — decades before the Civil Rights Movement — Greenwood — the Black north Tulsa neighborhood that includes the area known as Black Wall Street — was burned to the ground with assistance from the virtually all-white Tulsa Police Department. Sparked by accusations that a 19-year-old Black man had assaulted a 17-year-old white girl in an elevator, the Tulsa Race Massacre left as many as 300 Black people dead and thousands of Black residents displaced. Thirty-five square blocks were torched and damages spiraled into the millions. NewsNOW from FOX's Rain Augustine speaks with Michelle Place of the Tulsa Historical Society and Museum, on why we commemorate the event 100 years later.
