About Tulsa’s Buried Truth:
- One of the most brutal and rarely discussed racially motivated attacks in American history occurred in 1921 when a violent white mob descended on a prosperous Black community in Tulsa, Oklahoma, known as Black Wall Street. In less than 24 hours they destroyed and terrorized the neighborhood, killing as many as 300 Black Americans. The collective memory of the massacre was buried by a culture of silence and many victims’ bodies were never found. But now one century later, the possibility of mass graves buried beneath Tulsa has led to a renewed search for answers.
- The podcast is produced by the award-winning ABC News Investigative Unit and ABC Audio.
- Cindy Galli is chief of investigative projects, and Liz Alesse and Eric Johnson are executive producers for ABC Audio.
