One hundred years ago this May, a group armed white residents of Tulsa destroyed the Greenwood neighborhood, the richest black neighborhood in the country at that time. Dozens of people were killed and 35 square blocks were burned to the ground. The massacre was instigated in part by a prominent Unitarian newspaper owner who later served as the vice president of the American Unitarian Association. In this service, Rev. Rachel tells the story of the massacre – and of the Unitarian Universalist Association’s efforts at reparations.
