Never Again!

by Susan E. Atkins (Author)
Buy for $9.99 Excerpt

Never Again! is a heartbreaking story that brings to life the most heinous atrocity perpetrated by Americans against Americans in US history--the Tulsa Race Massacre of 1921. On May 31 and June 1, thousands of drunk, armed, and newly deputized white citizens invaded Tulsa's thriving Greenwood District, murdered an estimated three hundred Blacks, tortured thousands more, and incinerated nearly forty square blocks of homes, businesses, churches, and other institutions.

Susan E. Atkins' work of historical fiction is also about how this horrific tragedy was condoned by most Tulsa civic leaders and then hidden by them and later generations for many years. Never Again! recounts in vivid detail how a star-crossed, interracial couple sparks the Massacre and its immediate aftermath. Events are told through the eyes of two fictional best friends, soul sisters, and courageous fighters for justice. Born after the Massacre, their timeline extends from late 1921 through 2005, when the two women remain disappointed about the lack of justice for victims of the Massacre and their descendants--an appalling circumstance that has yet to be corrected.

All proceeds from the sale of Never Again! will be donated to Greenwood Rising, a state-of-the-art interactive exhibition of life before, after, and since the Massacre in Greenwood, the Black Wall Street History Center, Archer and Greenwood Avenues in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
