Magazine Description

In this issue

The May/June 2020 issue of Oklahoma Today examines one of the darkest chapters in the state's history with a special feature package examining the Tulsa Race Massacre of 1921 and its enduring legacy. Writer Quraysh Ali Lansana and researcher Bracken Klar tell the ugly story of the social forces that led to the massacre, how it unfolded, and the aftermath—as well as why it's seldom been taught in Oklahoma schools. Lansana also curated a collection of poetry and art from black Oklahomans to show the lingering emotional effects of the tragedy even ninety-nine years later. And Research Editor Kashea McCowan takes a look at the black-owned businesses operating in Tulsa's Greenwood District today. Also: five of Oklahoma's best overnight stays, including a Golden Girls-themed Airbnb in Ardmore and an Oklahoma City art-museum-turned-hotel; a million reasons to visit Hochatown; a portfolio of gorgeous springtime thunderstorm images; a look at the past and future of the deadCenter Film Festival; and the story of the Okmulgee Roy LeBlanc Invitational Rodeo, the oldest and largest black rodeo in the nation. All this and more in the May/June 2020 issue of Oklahoma Today. NOTE: Due to the enduring COVID-19 crisis, this issue's destinations may be closed and events may be canceled. Call ahead before planning any travel.
