Boxser Diversity Initiative’s Dan & Litten Visit Scene of the Tulsa Race Riots

With Tulsa in the news today, we think back to a year ago when #boxserdiversityinitiative board members Dan and Litten Boxser visited the Greenwood District of #Tulsa, OK, scene of the Tulsa Race Riots which took place on May 31st and June 1st 1921 – the single worst incident of racial violence in American history. 35 blocks of Greenwood were destroyed including BOMBINGS by private aircraft, destroying one of the wealthiest black communities in the United States – known as #blackwallstreet We ask that you educate yourselves on this moment in history. Only in 2020 did the Oklahoma Schools District begin to include this incident as part of their curriculum.
