Common Book 2020-22: Tulsa 1921: Past Event Recordings

TCC Public Good Read for 2020-2022

Magic City Books proudly welcomed Anneliese Bruner, the great-granddaughter of Mary E. Jones-Parrish, for a virtual event to celebrate the re-release of her great grandmother’s landmark first-person account of the Tulsa Race Massacre on May 25, 2021.

Magic City Books welcomed Carlos Moreno, author of The Victory on Greenwood, for a virtual book launch event on May 24, 2021. Joining Carlos in conversation was Jeff Martin, president and co-founder of Magic City Books. The Victory of Greenwood​ endeavors to tell the story of Greenwood from the perspective of the heroes and entrepreneurs who built Greenwood and then rebuilt it after its destruction. Historians have published many books and articles about the days surrounding the 1921 Race Massacre, but Tulsa knows very little about the founding of Greenwood. We as a city know even less about Greenwood’s reconstruction. Against all odds, the neighborhood was built again, better than before, and became known as “Black Wall Street”.

Magic City Books proudly welcomed Dolores Johnson, author of the memoir, Say I’m Dead: A Family Memoir of Race, Secrets, and Love, for a virtual author program on Monday January 21, 2021.

Magic City Books proudly welcomed native Tulsan Scott Ellsworth for a virtual book launch event in celebration of his new book, THE GROUND BREAKING: AN AMERICAN CITY AND ITS SEARCH FOR JUSTICE. The Ground Breaking is a chronicle of not only the horrific events of 1921 but also of the decades that were spent ignoring and outright denying the massacre that took place in Greenwood on May 31 and June 1, 1921. Ellsworth served as the chief historian on the Tulsa Race Riot Commission (1999-2000) and is chair of the committee leading the effort to identify the unmarked graves of victims of the 1921 riot for the upcoming 2021 Tulsa Race Massacre Centennial. Mr. Ellsworth was joined in conversation by Wall Street Journal Reporter, Lee Hawkins.
