Research and Writing Activity

Research either the Tulsa Race Riot or Clara Luper and the Katz Drugstore sit-in. Start with the information in this website and then use the internet and books to find more information. Based on what you learn, choose one of the following:

  • Write a newspaper article as if you were a reporter at the event.


  • Create a poem or piece of artwork about the event and what feelings you have about the event.

Afterward have a show and tell where you either read your article, poem or share your artwork with the class, a friend, or your family.
