Black History Month: Tulsa Race Massacre 100 years later

In 1921, A 19-year-old black man was accused of sexually assaulting a 17-year-old white girl. There was no evidence against him and the alleged victim never accused him or pressed charges. Nevertheless, he was thrown in jail. When a group of white men showed to lynch him, a group of black men showed up to protect him. And a fight broke out. But it's what happened after that fight ended, known as the Tulsa race massacre, that marks one of the darkest chapters in U-S History.
