For Ages 5+
The Tulsa Race Massacre happened between May 31 and June 1, 1921, when a white mob attacked the predominantly Black Greenwood neighborhood of Tulsa, Oklahoma. To this day, this is one of the worst incidents of racial violence in American history—and one of the most forgotten. This book will help kids understand what happened on that day in 1921 and encourage them to learn from our past and keep history from repeating itself.
Carlos Moreno grew up in Silicon Valley, California. When he moved to Tulsa, Oklahoma, as a young website developer, Greenwood welcomed him with open arms. He lives in Tulsa to this day, now with his wife and daughter, working as a graphic designer, writer, and community advocate.

I am an adult. I had never heard of the Tulsa Race Riots. I bought the book and read it. I will never forget this event in our history. Great book!
This is such an important topic and I was happy to purchase the book. However, I was underwhelmed by the visuals-I know-that's what this series is known for- but some historical pictures of the people and places would have made this a stronger narrative for kids. Kids are super visual- so I was disappointed and so was my 3rd grader.
As my child is mixed, I found that this book was so important and informative for my Son...
I think it is too stark for the children in my class. Some pictures, even drawings of life in Tulsa before the massacre would help bring the before times, especially, to life. What was behind the decision to keep it words only and black and white? It’s a clear design choice but why? The text is good though I am a tad unsure as to age level. I am thinking 9 or 10. I dearly want to use books on this and other important historical moments in my class. I plan to read it out loud and accompany it with a slide presentation and research materials for them.
Very easy read foe kids of all reading levels. It’s also a wonderful family book to sit and read.
