When the Depths Don’t give up their Dead: Exploring New Primary sources about the Elaine Race Massacre

February 5 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Event Navigation

Evenings with History presented by Brian K. Mitchell

What is known as the Elaine Massacre began on September 30, 1919, and continued until the arrival of federal troops in Phillips County on October 2. In those days several hundred African Americans were murdered. Subsequent trials of black workers saw the conviction of many others on charges from murder to night riding. This talk examines newly discovered primary sources and discusses how these new sources are reshaping the existing narrative.
