Hello, Readers! Dawn Porter directed and produced the upcoming American documentary television film Rise Again: Tulsa and the Red Summer for National Geographic.

What is this about?

DeNeen Brown is the film’s protagonist, reporting on the quest for a mass burial in her home state. Brown delves into the events that led to one of America’s deadliest bouts of racial violence, revealing insights into racial conflicts that erupted in the early twentieth century.

Scores of Black homes and businesses were burned, and hundreds of Black people were lynched and slaughtered with impunity between 1917 and 1923 when Jim Crow laws were at their peak and the Klu Klux Klan was resurgent across the country.

Brown’s reporting underscores the renewed clamor for victims and survivors to be compensated. Brown examines the current emerging anti-racism movement in the context of the Tulsa Massacre and the Red Summer, following a 2018 investigative report.

The video exposes the decades-long campaign by descendants and community members to discover the victims’ bodies and unearth realities that have been concealed for nearly a century, including access to family members of those killed, city officials, archaeologists, and historians.

Cast: Who’s in it?

Dawn Porter’s Trilogy Films and Trailblazer Studios, in collaboration with National Geographic Studios, are producing the film. DeNeen Brown is a contributing reporter, while Lauren Capps is the story producer. Porter is the producer and director.
