Tulsa Race Riot: A Report by the Oklahoma Commission to Study the Tulsa Race Riot of 1921 by Oklahoma Commission to Study the Tulsa Race Riot of 1921 ( - 0).


The Greenwood neighborhood of Tulsa, Oklahoma was known as "Black Wall Street" because of the success of its businesses and residents, some of whom were among the wealthiest Black people in the United States. In 1921, white citizens of Tulsa attacked the Greenwood area over two days, burning most of it to the ground and killing many residents. The devastated neighborhood never regained its prosperity and position. The incident was quickly forgotten in the press and not spoken of in the standard histories of Oklahoma. In 1997, the state government of Oklahoma established a commission to study the 1921 riot, including gathering documents and testimony of the elderly survivors, and to produce a report when their work was completed. This report was issued in 2001. ( Colleen McMahon)

If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Do you have evidence or a reference indicating that Oklahoma state documents/reports are PD? Some states they are (federal is), some states they aren't.

EDIT: I found the discussion in Book Suggestions: viewtopic.php?f=23&t=83370

So it is. :)

Mightyfelix had previously considered recording this and provided the evidence she had gotten that it is in the public domain, and I appreciate her sharing that very much!

May 31, 2021 is the 100th anniversary of the riot, I aim to finish the report by then at the latest. I'm going to try to move this pretty quickly (am already recording some sections of it).

Thanks Colleen for doing this one. I was considering it, but have too much on my plate. An important part of history to secure!

Thanks so much!

Still looking for a DPL, though anyone interested should be warned there's some stuff in here that is gonna be hard to listen to, and there are multiple instances of the n-word in citing what people said at particular moments in the chain of events.

Hi, ColleenMc,

I was wondering whether you are still looking for a DPL as I would like to work on this project.

Thanks.

Regards,

Jasna

Oh good - I was hoping someone would step in to DPL this one (otherwise I would have volunteered). Important stuff, but it's bound to be intensely depressing.

Hi Jasna! I am definitely still looking for a DPL. I will warn that parts of it are going to be hard to listen to as it involves details of extensive violence against the Black people of Tulsa, and in addition there are some occurrences of the n-word and other racist language when quoting statements of the attackers involved. If that is something you can handle, I would love to have you aboard!

Hi, Colleen,

I appreciate your fair warning, which I had previously seen on the thread.

I understand the nature of the text and will consider it a privilege to DPL

Thank you so much for accepting me in your project.

Ready and waiting!

Ok, Jasna is in as DPL and we can move to Going Solo!

Colleen, I've copied the format of some of the federal final reports that we have in the catalogue, and entered the title as "Final Report from the Oklahoma Commission to Study the Tulsa Race Riot of 1921." Since this is what will show on the catalogue page, you may like to use this title in your sections intros. Like so:
    • "Section [number] of Final Report from the Oklahoma Commission to Study the Tulsa Race Riot of 1921. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"
        If you wish, say:
        "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
          Say:
          "Final Report from the Oklahoma Commission to Study the Tulsa Race Riot of 1921. [Section Number] [Chapter Title] [Part Number (if applicable]"
