An article by CNN highlights the voices of the descendants of the survivors of the 1921 Race Massacre in Tulsa, highlighting the injustices faced during and after the Massacre. Descendants state that before reconciliation can occur, the government and general public must recognized the atrocities that the Greenwood community faced and how the dismissal of those injustices continues the oppression of the Black community in Tulsa and in the United States. See:
