This week we're taking a break from our normal episodes to talk about something extremely important. The Tulsa Race Massacre is one of the worst nights in American history. The residents of Greenwood were thriving and successful and that was brutally taken away from them. This story is almost never taught in schools, even in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
This weekend is also Juneteenth. In between recording this and today, the Senate unanimously voted to make Juneteenth a national holiday. This is great but would be a lot sweeter if it wasn’t so preformative. We still have a lot more work to do. I'm including resources below for how we can continue to learn and help our black loved ones.
