The end of World War I was marked by racial violence in over 30 American cities. Because of the bloodshed, this period in American History was known as Red Summer.

Professor Clayton’s lecture will examine the origins of the racial violence; provide an in-depth look at two incidents that took place; and argue that what happened during Red Summer set the stage for the worst incident of racial violence in U.S. history: the Tulsa Race War of 1921.
