The Oklahoman surveyed 305 people, nearly all of them Oklahomans, and found 83% said they never received a full lesson on the Tulsa Race Massacre or Black Wall Street in their K-12 school.
The Tulsa Race Massacre is a horrific and shameful part of Tulsa's history - but it is our history. At Collegiate Hall, we must do more than acknowledge the Massacre; our teachers, students and families are committed to reflecting on the truth of our past, and working together to build a safe and equitable city to raise our children.
This page provides our staff, students and families with resources to learn about the rich and resilient culture of Greenwood and Black Wall Street, as well as the necessary truths of the massacre that attempted to take all of that away.
