Over four days in September 1906, at least 25 African Americans were killed and hundreds more injured in Atlanta after false reports of white women being assaulted by Black men sparked a wave of uncontrolled violence from white residents.
WABE Studios, in partnership with the National Center for Civil and Human Rights, presents a new original documentary, “(re)Defining History: Uncovering The 1906 Atlanta Race Massacre,” exploring the truth behind the massacre, what led to the violence, and how it spawned resilience in the Black community.
