An event in Black History that I bet few know about happened 100 years ago. [View all]

This occurred in Phillips County, Arkansas, near the small town of Elaine, Sept. 30 and Oct. 1, 1919. White mobs killed somewhere between 100 and 237 black men, women, and children, maybe more.

Arkansas is holding a faith-based truth telling hearing on the event.

I've been in Arkansas since 1992 and this is the first I've heard about this massacre.
