It’s been said that every wise thing in the world today was said earlier.

“Tulsa: The Fire and the Forgotten” is a documentary that examines the tragic events that lead to the Tulsa Race Massacre of 1921. With the help of first-hand accounts from survivors and the work of present-day activists, Tulsa's hidden story will be set free on its 100th anniversary.
