This book takes a powerful look at the Tulsa Race Massacre, one of the worst incidents of racial violence in our nation's history. The book traces the history of the Black community in Tulsa's Greenwood district and chronicles the devastation that occurred in 1921 when a white mob attacked the Black community. News of what happened was largely suppressed, and no official investigation occurred for seventy-five years. This picture book sensitively introduces young readers to this tragedy and concludes with a call for a better future.
Unspeakable: The Tulsa Race Massacre book discussion comes with vocabulary, discussion questions, extension activities and additional resources. This picture book was written by Carole Boston Weatherford and illustrated by Floyd Cooper.
