Rise Again: Tulsa and the Red Summer
- This event has passed.
Experience the world premiere virtual screening of Rise Again: Tulsa and the Red Summer. From award-winning journalist DeNeen Brown and acclaimed director Dawn Porter, the documentary film comes 100 years after the two-day Tulsa Massacre in 1921 that led to the murder of hundreds of Black people and left thousands homeless and displaced.
Digging into the events that led to one of the worst episodes of racial violence in America’s history, Brown reveals insights into racial conflict incidents that erupted in the early 20th century. Between 1917 and 1923, when Jim Crow laws were at their height and the Klu Klux Klan was resurging across the nation, scores of Black homes and businesses were razed, and hundreds of Black people were lynched and massacred with impunity.
Brown’s reporting highlights the revived call for justice for victims and survivors. Brown explores the current new anti-racism movement in the context of the Tulsa Massacre and the Red Summer, revealing the decades-long effort by descendants and community members to find victims’ bodies and unearth truths that have been suppressed for nearly a century. Rise Again also untangles the role the media played in covering events at the time in order to reveal the full extent of the nation’s buried past.
