Connecticut Law Review’s 2021 Symposium, titled “History and the Tulsa Race Massacre: What’s (the Law) Got to Do With It?” explored the legal and historical relevance of the Massacre. Following the Symposium, Connecticut Law Review Symposium Editors, Abby Booth and Joan Bosma, interviewed Professor Scott Ellsworth, a historian and leading scholar on the Massacre and a panelist at the Symposium. Professor Ellsworth provides a summary of the Massacre—including the events before and after the Massacre—and discusses the overwhelming lack of recognition that the Massacre has received in the last century.
