New Multimedia Case Explores the Tulsa Massacre and the Call for Reparations

A new case by Mihir Desai, “The Tulsa Massacre and the Call for Reparations,” and the complementary multimedia version, explores how historic social injustices should be addressed through the primary example of the 1921 Tulsa Massacre in the U.S. Survivors of the massacre and their descendants, including Representative Regina Goodwin of Tulsa, believe these injustices should be addressed through reparations and have continued to push the government of Tulsa to pay reparations for the massacre. In 2020, after no direct reparations and largely symbolic governmental efforts, proponents of reparations wondered if that call would finally be answered. The upcoming centennial of the massacre, the resurgent Black Lives Matter movement, and discussions within the U.S. about reparations broadly have made the issue more salient. The case guides students to consider the specific issue of reparations for the Tulsa Massacre, the idea of reparations generally, and the use of reparations to respond to the effects of slavery and racist governmental policies in the U.S. A PDF version of the case is offered for free from Harvard Business Publishing, but does require registration. Educators can request the free teaching note.
