May 31st and June 1st 2021 mark the hundredth anniversary of the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre, one of the most violent anti-Black attacks in U.S. history. With the AHR’s June issue, the journal joins  in commemorating that terrible event. The cover of the issue features photographs of Tulsa's Greenwood district, and it accompanies an article by University of Oklahoma historian Karlos Hill titled “Community Engaged History: A Reflection on the 100th Anniversary of the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre.” In this episode, AHR editor Alex Lichtenstein speaks with Hill about community engaged history and about his own ongoing support of commemorative and memory related work in Tulsa leading up to the 2021 centenary.
