Dear Friend,

This month, Democracy Now! turns 25—that’s 25 years of bringing you the voices and stories you won’t hear in the corporate media. Democracy Now! has always refused to take government or corporate funding, because nothing is more important to us than our editorial independence. Nothing is more important to us than telling you the truth. But that means we rely on you, our audience, for support. Please make your contribution of $25 or more in honor of our 25th anniversary and help us stay on air for another 25 years. Right now, a generous donor will even DOUBLE your gift, which means it’ll go twice as far! This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to make a donation, please do so today. Thank you and remember, wearing a mask is an act of love. Wearing two is even better.
-Amy Goodman

Search Underway for Possible Mass Grave of African Americans Killed in 1921 Tulsa Massacre

HeadlineFeb 06, 2020

The city of Tulsa, Oklahoma, is slated to excavate part of a cemetery to search for a possible mass grave of African Americans murdered by white mobs during the 1921 Tulsa massacre — one of the worst events of racist violence in U.S. history. On June 1, 1921, a mob of more than 1,000 white people looted and burned the prosperous African-American neighborhood of Greenwood, often referred to as “Black Wall Street.” Thirty-five city blocks were completely destroyed, and as many as 300 people were killed. Eyewitnesses say truckloads of corpses were dumped into unmarked mass graves.
