ABC News Live will present “Tulsa’s Buried Truth,” a documentary special on the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre, nearly 100 years after a violent white mob descended on a prosperous Black community, known as Black Wall Street, and, in less than 24 hours, destroyed and terrorized the neighborhood, killing as many as 300 Black Americans.

Stemming from reporting that aired on the groundbreaking, primetime newsmagazine “Soul of a Nation” and the successful podcast “Soul of a Nation: Tulsa’s Buried Truth,” the half-hour documentary special will take a look at one of the most brutal and rarely discussed racially-motivated attacks in American history.

Led by ABC News Senior National Correspondent Steve Osunsami, “Tulsa’s Buried Truth” will examine more around the issue of reparations, including previous efforts that failed in Tulsa and feature additional interviews with Tulsa natives, Tulsa’s current mayor, G.T. Bynum, and descendants of the victims, including Joi McCondichie, and those who are now a part of the group working to find mass graves, including Kristi Williams.

“Tulsa’s Buried Truth” premieres on Tuesday, May 18 (8:30 – 9:00 p.m. ET), on ABC News Live and will be available on demand on Hulu.

“Tulsa’s Buried Truth” is produced by ABC News’ Investigative Unit for ABC News Live. It is executive produced by Cindy Galli.
