Hate Crimes in the Heartland compares the recent hate crime in Tulsa Oklahoma in April of 2010 to the 1921 Tulsa Race Riot. In 1921, in a frenzy of media-enflamed hatred, a white mob rampaged through the wealthy "Negro Wall Street" district of Greenwood, destroying 35 city blocks, leaving up to 300 people dead and more than 10,000 home- less - all in one night. Not one white person was ever arrested, tried, or convicted of any crime related to the 1921 Race Riots. Racial tensions in America have never been higher and the tragic events explored in the film clearly illustrate the transformation of racial unrest to violence, of denial, blocking the path toward resolution and healing.
