The City of Tulsa launched the 1921 Graves Investigation to help find answers from the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre. To do this, the City has convened some of the best experts in America to help locate, identify and connect people today with those who were lost more than 100 years ago. The public's help is needed in this historical and groundbreaking work.
This September, field experts are conducting a third excavation at Oaklawn Cemetery.
More information about the process so far, along with additional information about this excavation can be found online.
