I searched for existing pages on this topic before I created one and none showed up! The US Black Heritage Project created a new one: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:US_Black_Heritage_Tulsa_Race_Massacre What do you think of merging the two? Emma~~US Black Heritage Project
The PM hasn't been on WikiTree for over a year. Time to merge?
