A five minute preview of a feature length documentary. The film explores a dramatic relationship between violent hate crimes in today’s media and a long-term cover-up of a hate-based race riot that happened 90 years ago in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Through the personal stories of survivors, journalists, witnesses and lawmakers, Hate Crimes in the Heartland exposes the injustices that have occurred, and gives a voice to the voiceless.
