Mass grave of Black victims of Tulsa race massacre possibly unearthed in Oklahoma cemetery

More than 20 years after she started to unearth the truth about the 1921 race massacre in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Phoebe Stubblefield heard a shout outside the trench in the city’s Oaklawn Cemetery where she was digging. 

It came from her colleagues working nearby, who had just uncovered the first two of what would turn out to be roughly a dozen coffins in an unmarked mass grave, which may hold the remains of Black victims of the massacre, estimated to have killed up to 300 mostly Black people.
