Rise Again: Tulsa and the Red Summer

Rise Again: Tulsa and the Red Summer

It has been exactly 100 years since the dark moment in United States history with the infamous Tulsa Massacre in 1921. Many people forgot this horrific two-day event that left hundreds of Black people murdered and thousands of residents displaced. National Geographic’s documentary Rise Again: Tulsa and the Red Summer relives that fateful event and sheds new light on the century-old conflict.

Award-winning Washington Post journalist and Oklahoma native DeNeen Brown explores on the search for a mass grave in her native state. With her research, she uncovered into the events that led to the worst episodes of racial violence in American history. Between 1917 and 1923, Ku Klux Klan and Jim Crow laws were at its pinnacle as scores of Black homes and businesses were razed and hundreds were lynched without any consequences.

Her report highlights the revived call for justice for victims and survivors. Following a 2018 investigative report, she looks into the anti-racism movement in the context of the Tulsa Massacre and the Red Summer.

The film reveals decades-long efforts from descendants and community members to find the remaining victims’ bodies and uncover the truth suppressed for a century.
