Photographic Print of Pinback button promoting reparations for the Tulsa Race Massacre, ca. 2001
On 31 May-1 June 1 1921, mobs of White residents, many of them deputised and given weapons by city officials, attacked Black residents and destroyed homes and businesses of the Greenwood District in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The attacks, carried out on the ground and from private aircraft, burned and destroyed more than 35 square blocks of the neighbourhood known as "Black Wall Street - at the time the wealthiest Black community in the United States. More than 800 people were admitted to hospitals, and as many as 6,000 Black residents were interned in large facilities, many of them for several days. The event is among "the single worst incident[s] of racial violence in American history". A red pinback button with white lettering centered in the middle that reads "REPARATIONS / NOW! / GREENWOOD / CULTURAL CENTER / TULSA, OK." Owned by Eddie Faye Gates
