The Common Denominator of race riots in America


Kristi Williams, chair of the Greater Tulsa African American Affairs Commission speaks about the common denominator of race riots in the United States during the early 1900s.


2021 marks the 100th anniversary of the Greenwood Massacre, or the Tulsa Race Massacre, when a white mob killed as many as 300 people in “Black Wall Street”, a thriving African American middle class community and business district. The community is still fighting for full accountability and reparations for the deadliest and most destructive massacre in the country’s history. Kristi Williams is one of the community organizers campaigning for justice. She chairs the Greater Tulsa African American Affairs Commission and is a member of the committee overseeing the city’s search for mass graves from the massacre.
