With a new preface, aprofound, chilling, and heartbreaking, contribution to American history' that investigates the causes of the twentieth centurys deadliest race riot and how its legacy has scarred and shaped a community (Boston Globe). On May 30, 1921, a misunderstanding between a white elevator operator and a Black delivery boy escalated into the worse race riot in U.S. history. In this compelling and deeply human account, James Hirsch investigates how the Tulsa riot erupted, how it was covered up, and how the survivors and their descendants fought for belated justice. ';Superbly researched and engagingly written' (Fort Worth Morning Star), Riot and Remembrance powerfully chronicles one community's effort to overcome a horrific legacy, revealing how the segregation of history and memory affects all Americans a hundred years later.';The best book yet on the Tulsa riots, and one that should be required reading.'Seattle Times
