May 31 - 1921 - The Tulsa Race Riots

The most violent, destructive, and over the top racially motivated riot in American history happened in Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1921. Very few people remember it as such today, because it is generally not well remembered. The fact that cultural memory has no place for the Tulsa Race Riots might actually be because they were so violent, destructive, and over the top.
