The Color of Wealth: Tulsa, A Century After the Massacre

A series of presentations on race, wealth, and Tulsa-100 years after the massacre that changed everything. Please join the Samuel DuBois Cook Center on Social Equity for a series of presentations on Tulsa-100 years after the massacre that destroyed the Greenwood neighborhood and stripped the city of its Black wealth. The program will include the unveiling of the forthcoming Cook Center report, "Oil and Blood: The Color of Wealth in Tulsa, Oklahoma," detailing the Tulsa Massacre of 1921 and its aftereffects. The report is the final in the Color of Wealth series of reports from the National Asset Scorecard for Communities of Color, which has previously analyzed racial wealth disparities in Baltimore, Boston, Los Angeles, Miami, and Washington D.C. Raffi E. García, Lauren Russell, Jorge Zumaeta, and William A. Darity Jr.-four of the paper's six coauthors-will be in conversation with WUNC's Lindsay Thomas. Additionally, students from the Cook Center's Global Inequalities Research Initiative course on Tulsa will share presentations and findings from their semester-long projects.
