In this June 1, 1921, photo provided by the Tulsa Historical Society smoke rises over Tulsa's Greenwood District during race riots which left 300 blacks dead and hundreds more wounded in a span of 18 hours. Wyatt Tate Brady, who arrived in Tulsa in 1890, had become a man of means and influence by the time the territory became Oklahoma in 1907. He helped ink Tulsa's incorporation papers and now his name is all over the city. But Brady was also a member of the Ku Klux Klan, and now as new questions emerge about his role in the city’s 1921 race riots, many wonder if it’s time that the city pay less tribute to its founding father.
