Welcome to the Before They Die documentary blog.
The worn, tattered books in the photo at the top of this blog reflect what history has had to say about the 1921 Tusla Race Riot – the absence of titles on the spines of the books says it all… NOT MUCH. Just as the torn books are in need of repair, so to the survivors of the 1921 Tulsa Race Riot are in need of reparations. Unlike other US citizens who have been compensated for terroists acts that have occur on US soil (the Japanese-Americans after WWII, 911 victims, Oklahoma City bombing), the Tulsa Race Riot survivors are still waiting. Many of the survivors could no longer wait on this earth for the justice that had long eluded them. But there are those who are still waiting to see justice prevail…BEFORE THEY DIE.
