Unspeakable: The Tulsa Race Massacre
Carole Boston Weatherford
Art: Floyd Cooper

This beautifully illustrated account of the massacre of ‘Black Wall Street’ by white mobsters tells a story most often left out of history books.

Celebrated author Carole Boston Weatherford and illustrator Floyd Cooper provide a powerful look at one of the worst incidents of racial violence in our nation’s history. The book traces the history of African Americans in Tulsa’s Greenwood district and chronicles the devastation that occurred in 1921.

News of what happened was largely suppressed, and no official investigation occurred for seventy-five years. This picture book sensitively introduces young readers to this tragedy and concludes with a call for a better future.
