Search to resume for mass graves of Tulsa massacre victims

I never heard of this.

Because neither side was proud of what happened.

How many were killed?

Armed black counter-protesters showed up to intimidate a crowd of unarmed white protesters. One of the white protesters allegedly attempted to grab a black counter-protester's gun and the black counter-protesters fired into the crowd, killing 10. That set off a mini race war which blacks (being the minority) got the worse of (the NAACP conducted a thorough investigation which estimated 50 dead whites and 150-200 dead blacks).

For pretty much all of its history the event was referred to as the Tulsa Race Riots or Tulsa Race War until last year when Hollywood decided to rebrand it as the Tulsa Race Massacre and depict it as a one-sided white-on-black pogrom.
