Summary, etc.:
The Burning re-creates Greenwood, Tulsa, at the height of its prosperity; explores the currents of hatred, racism, and mistrust between its Black residents and Tulsa's White population; narrates events leading up to and including Greenwood's devastation; and documents the subsequent silence that surrounded this tragedy. Delving into history that's long been suppressed, this is the true story of Black Wall Street and the Tulsa Race Massacre, with updates that connect the historical significance of the massacre to the ongoing struggle for racial justice in America.
