The public oversight committee involved in the search for graves from the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre will meet Monday to figure out the next steps in the search.

The city said this will be a virtual meeting and the committee will get started at 5:30 p.m. Monday afternoon.

They said experts will give a full update on the test excavation from July and discuss the artifacts they found at Oaklawn Cemetery.

Previously researchers from across the nation came in and searched part of the cemetery for several days and did not find any evidence of human remains in that area.

City leaders said they are still hoping to search Rolling Oaks Memorial Gardens and an area called the Canes which is east of Newblock Park.
