"Tulsa, 1921: Reporting a Massacre"

Nov 12, 2019

Our guest on ST is Randy Krehbiel, who's been a reporter for The Tulsa World since 1979 and now covers political and governmental affairs for that paper. He joins us to discuss his new book, "Tulsa, 1921: Reporting a Massacre." In this deeply-researched work, Krehbiel studies local newspaper accounts in order to understand the mindset and motivations of Tulsa's citizens (both black and white) at the time of this tragedy. Thus he considers how The Tulsa World, The Tulsa Tribune, and other publications contributed to the various circumstances that led to the disaster -- and how these papers, moreover, helped to create/shape/determine its aftermath.
