The 95th anniversary of the Tulsa Oklahoma massacre and you are tuned into the black talk radio network. 35 blocks housing 1,256 residences were destroyed, about 400 black people lost their lives, over 800 suffered injuries and 10,000 were left homeless. The most prosperous black community in America burned to the ground with attacks by an all-white militia that included dropping bombs from planes on people’s homes, public lynching’s and executions.
