Before Rodney King, before the riots in Cincinnati, before Newark and Detroit and Watts, there was the Tulsa race war. On May 30, 1921, a misunderstanding between a white elevator operator and a black delivery boy escalated into the worst race riot in U.S. history. In this compelling and deeply human account, James Hirsch investigates how it erupted, how it was covered up, and how the survivors and their descendants are fighting for belated justice. "Superbly researched and engagingly written" (Fort Worth Morning Star), Riot and Remembrance powerfully chronicles one community's effort to overcome a horrific legacy, revealing how the segregation of history and memory affects all Americans.

James S. Hirsch is a former reporter for the "New York Times" & the "Wall Street Journal." He lives in Needham, Massachusetts.
