Hope

John Hope Franklin Reconciliation Park, in Tulsa, Oklahoma, memorializes the 1921 Tulsa Race Riot, the worst civil disturbance in American History.

Hope Plaza– The Park entry’s 16-foot granite structure contains three larger-than-life bronze sculptures representing actual pictures from the 1921 riot (JHFCFR website):

  • Hostility – A white man fully armed for assault
  • Humiliation – A black man with his hands raised in surrender
  • Hope – The white director of the Red Cross holding a black baby

Much more information on the park and sculptures is available at the Exit78 page, Reconciliation.
