by Scott Ellsworth
This new book is described as the definitive history of the Tulsa Race Massacre, which occurred a century ago. The author has been researching the tragedy for decades, and in recent years served on the city’s reckoning commission. Ellsworth details his and others' work to locate the graves of people who died in the massacre and describes the ways that the white establishment sought over the years to hide the crime. A deeply moving book that is also “an essential historical record surrounding heinous events that have yet to be answered with racial justice.~ Kirkus Reviews
