Tulsa Race Riot Documentary Premiere

Before They Die is a Documentary about the survivors of the devastating 1921 Tulsa Race Riot and their quest for justice. With the help of old photos and rarely seen video, a documentary film presents a moment that for years was ignored in Tulsa.

Several people who survived the violence that erupted and focused on the city’s black population share the horror of the time. The documentary also covers the so far unsuccessful fight to secure reparations for those who lost so much in the riot.

The premiere screening will be at 3:00 PM on October 19 in the Tulsa Performing Arts Center. General admission tickets are $25.
