Burned out of Homes and History: Unearthing the Silenced Voices of the Tulsa Race Riot
Christensen, Linda
Rethinking Schools, v27 n1 p12-18 Fall 2012
In this article, the author describes a section of Stealing Home, a unit she created about ways the homes of people of color have been stolen through "race riots" and "urban renewal" in Tulsa, Oklahoma; Los Angeles' Chavez Ravine; and Portland, Oregon's Albina neighborhood. This is the first of a two-part series about the unit. Through historical documents, novels, videos, and a role play, high school language arts students learn about the racist riot that destroyed the African American section of Tulsa, Oklahoma, in 1921. They turn their understanding into poetry and historical fiction. (Contains 3 resources.)
