Book cover of The Burning: The Tulsa Race Massacre of 1921 by Tim Madiganby Tim Madigan

“A powerful book, a harrowing case study made all the more so by Madigan’s skillful, clear-eyed telling of it.” Adam Nossiter, The New York Times Book Review

On the morning of June 1, 1921, a white mob numbering in the thousands marched across the railroad tracks dividing black from white in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and obliterated a black community then celebrated as one of America’s most prosperous. 34 square blocks of Tulsa’s Greenwood community, known then as the Negro Wall Street of America, were reduced to smoldering rubble.
