Borrero English 1102 The Tulsa Riot of 1921 The Tulsa Riot is one of the many historical events throughout time that has impacted the world of racism and power. During the Harlem Renaissance, which is a period of enlightenment for the African American community, a complex event happened in Tulsa, Oklahoma. A Negro delivery boy was accused of attacking a Caucasian girl, Sarah Page, in an elevator. But there was no real evidence that Rowland assaulted Page (Ellsworth 46). There are so many different false stories that began to tear Dick Rowland’s life apart.
