About this Event

The Tulsa Race Massacre of 1921 was accomplished in less than twenty-four hours, but setting the stage for that horrific event took more than three years. "Architects of the Massacre" explores how an elite group of Tulsa citizens and government officials helped make one of America's cruelest acts of domestic terrorism possible, if not inevitable.

Researched by award-winning historian Randy Hopkins, and told through a series of posters, articles, photographs, and film, "Architects of the Massacre" provides deep background on the individuals responsible for the climate of fear and intimidation that culminated with the events of the Tulsa Race Massacre of 1921.

The exhibit will be open for viewing from Friday, June 25th through Wednesday, August 31st. This exhibit all-ages, and is open to the public. A $10 donation and advanced ticket registration are suggested. Masking and social distancing will be encouraged.

Open gallery hours will be Saturdays and Sundays from 11:00 am until 4:00 pm, and Wednesday evenings from 5:30-8:00 pm. Viewings may also be requested by appointment by emailing
