TULSA, Okla. - The public is learning more about the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre every day as it had gone decades without being taught in Tulsa schools.
Today, students at Tulsa Public Schools are learning about the tragedy that led to the deaths of hundreds of black Tulsans at the hands of white people who took up arms and attacked Black Wall Street and the Greenwood neighborhood.
FOX23's Tiffany Alaniz visited a Will Rogers High School to talk with local students who are learning about their city's darkest days.
There she saw how the students were being taught the history of how the infamous event played out and what the effects have been nearly a century later.
