Tulsa Massacre: Photos of Black Gun Owners on Black Wall Street 100 Years Later

In 1921, white mobs killed as many as 300 Black Americans in the Greenwood neighborhood of Tulsa and leveled the affluent, 35-block center for Black commerce and entrepreneurship. The march, considered one of the largest recent gatherings of Black gun rights activists, included: The New Black Panther Party for Self-Defense, the Huey P. Newton Gun Club, the Elmer “Geronimo” Pratt Pistol and Rifle Gun Club of Central Texas, the Anubis Arms Gun Club, and the Panther Special Operations Command. \"We are tired of begging,” Nick Bezzel, the co-leader of the Pratt Gun Club, told Tulsa ABC affiliate News Channel 8. “Our ancestors deserve nothing less than our strongest efforts.”Some of the gun rights advocates later joined the Tulsa Race Massacre Legacy Fest, another peaceful march organized to mark the centennial. “We must honor those that are still living from the bombing, which includes Mother Fletcher,” Balogun told VICE News.
