Crowds start to gather as screams are heard from within an elevator at a local commercial building in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
A man dashes out the door and into the streets, the women that screamed claimed that "he raped me". The man was quickly chased down by the police.
HE RAPED ME!
News spread fast that the man was going to be lynched so a group of armed African- American men went to the courthouse to prevent it. This led to much conflict and death.
The white people were so enraged by this confrontation that very same day they ransacked black communities leaving 10,000 African-Americans homeless and hundreds dead.
The fight for basic human rights in the 1920s was a terribly tragic fight for something that should be required for everyone. We learn about these events in our history classes so America doesn't make the same mistake again.
EQUALITY FOR ALL!!!
Even today we are still fighting for equality. I would have to say the Civil Rights Movement is one of the most significant battles in American History.
