What is this about?

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.
