The truth about Tulsa's race riots has been a long time in coming, but now that it's here leaders hope it will help us grow closer together. The 1921 race riots destroyed the City of Tulsa's thriving black business district. Hundreds packed the sanctuary at Mount Zion Baptist Church Sunday night to honor survivors of the 1921 race riot. The prayers asked races and religions to come together. Survivors say race relations just needs one good push.
