Courtney B. Vance and Angela Bassett To Produce a limited series about the Tulsa Race Massacre

The announcement comes just before the 100 year anniversary of the massacre

Bassett Vance Productions has teamed up with MTV Entertainment Studios on a limited series about the Tulsa Race Massacre of 1921.

The untitled drama will be scripted by playwright Nathan Alan Davis, who previously highlighted the real-life event in his play The High Ground.

The series will tell the story of Greenwood district in Tulsa, which was the wealthiest Black community in the United States at the time, and the violence that killed hundreds of residents and destroyed their businesses in just under 24 hours. It will also introduce the extraordinary stories of entrepreneurs who built the community that we now call the ‘Black Wall Street.’

“Angela and I have always had a deep appreciation for history, especially when it comes to stories that are rooted in the Black community.” Said Courtney B. Vance in a statement, “We look forward to working on this series with MTV Entertainment Studios that will explore an important slice of American history as we look to reflect on events that changed the lives of countless Black families in Tulsa, Oklahoma, one hundred years ago.”
