Do nothing. Acknowledge the terrible, horrific events that unfolded from May 31-June 1, 1921, in the Greenwood section of North Tulsa. Acknowledge the deaths, the loss of buildings and homes and businesses, acknowledge the pain and suffering, but move on. This event happened in the past. Most of the people who were hurt during this tragedy are gone. Nothing can be done to help them. This is history. Picking at the wound, reopening sores only prolongs the suffering. Let the past heal. You can’t change the past, we can only learn from it. Rehashing the past just creates resentment from blacks to whites. New resentments build out of the smoldering embers of the past. Let it be. Acknowledge that it happened, then move on.
