Situated in the fictional Museum of Conveniently Forgotten History, “The Magic City Massacre” tells the story of one of the most prosperous black communities in the history of the United States, how Tulsa came to be the site of the worst incidence of civil unrest second only to the Civil War, and why almost one-hundred years later, most Americans still don’t know about it. Your exhibit guide is JUSTICE, a docent older than Methuselah. During your tour you’ll lean a clandestine language, hear Americana and roots music, and relive a classic children’s game. A trip to the museum will never be the same!
