The Price of White Terror with Tracy Manning-Gibbs

Black History Year - May 3, 2021 - 37:08

White terrorism has lasting consequences. For the Greenwood District of Tulsa, Oklahoma, the generational wealth they spent 15 years independently building was obliterated in a 24 hour period of racist violence. 100 years later, the community formerly known as Black Wall Street is still economically struggling in the massacre's aftermath. On this episode, we're going straight to the source again to unpack the economic devastation of the Tulsa Race Massacre with Tracy Manning-Gibbs, descendant of a survivor. We'll dig deep into the lingering trauma and financial consequences of white tyranny – and chart a path forward to rebuilding our communities. PushBlack exists because we saw we had to take this into our own hands.
