Professor Paula Johnson

Professor Paula Johnson recently spoke with KCBS (San Francisco, CA) on the 100th Anniversary of the Tulsa Race Massacre. When asked what the Tulsa Race Massacre shows us about the historical erasure of violence against Black people, Johnson said, “Even as something as horrific as the Tulsa Race Massacre we will go to great lengths to bury the history so that it isn’t known, not only by contemporary generations but by subsequent generations and that is the very strength and enduring legacy of white supremacy.”
