In 1996, the 75th anniversary of the Tulsa Massacre (May 31 to June 1, 1921), a bi-partisan group in the Oklahoma State legislature authorizes formation of the Oklahoma Commission to Study the Tulsa Race Riot of 1921. Members are appointed to investigate events, interview survivors, hear testimony from the public, and prepare a report of events. There is an effort toward public education about these events through the process.
