Known Dead and Wounded in the Tulsa Race Riot

Compiled by I. Marc Carlson

There are a number of differing opinions among historians and non-historians regarding the actual number of people killed during the riot. These range from 36 (10 White/26 Black) to more than 300. The reality is that no one really knows.  This issue is aggravated by the semantic difference between "died in the riot" and "died as a result of the riot."

What this list represents are those people we know of. This is not intended to represent any people we know nothing of, obviously. It is probable that several of these groupings may overlap, with some of the identified people being the same as the unidentified ones.

This list is also just a work in progress.

TRRC refers to the Tulsa Race Riot Commission (and specifically their listing of "Names of confirmed dead from injuries during the Tulsa Race Riot")
