Tulsa, Oklahoma — The Tulsa Public School teaches students about the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre with a complete curriculum from grades 3-12.
The school district’s mission is to end silence by providing a safe place for students to look back, think about the present, and learn for the future.
Meg Deweese has taught history for over 20 years. She teaches 8th grade at the Thoreau Demonstration Academy. She said the curriculum was an opportunity to ensure that the genocide was taught.
“This is really new to us as a full-fledged unit, because it’s not the time we usually enter,” Deuce said.
8th grade Danielle Armah sees the class as an opportunity for all students to learn.
“As a black student or a regular student, I think it’s important to learn where America came from and how it has progressed over the years,” Armor said.
8th grade Linley Summerfield said Tulsa can’t fix what happened, but it can improve it.
“I don’t think we can fix it as we did back then, but in a way we can improve it and help fairness,” said Summerfield.
