Chris and Jesse are joined by Anneliese Bruner. Anneliese is the great granddaughter of Mary E. Jones Parrish, a survivor of the Tulsa Race Massacre of 1921. Bruner’s great grandmother wrote an account of what she and others experienced during this devastating time in Tulsa, and her writings have been passed down through generations, and into Bruner’s hands. In our conversation, Bruner discussed her level of shock when she was given the book by her father, and she discusses her first experience in Tulsa during the centennial commemoration of Tulsa Race Massacre. We also discuss the importance of primary document historical research, and how the severity of the massacre has been white washed over the years.
