Description

Before They Die: A documentary film chronicling the survivors of the 1921 Tulsa Race Riots and their quest for justice

The Tulsa Race Riot, occurred over 18 hours on May 31-June 1, 1921, a white mob attacked residents, homes and businesses in the predominantly black Greenwood neighborhood of Tulsa, Oklahoma. The event remains one of the worst incidents of racial violence in U.S. history, and one of the least-known: News reports were largely squelched, despite the fact that hundreds of people were killed and thousands left homeless.

Join us for a special screening of Before They Die and stay around for a lighthearted community discussion afterwards. This event is free and open to the public. Seating is limited so you must reserve a ticket.
