Recognizing the men and women on the front lines of America's longest wars. To mark the 20th anniversary of 9/11, Diane talks to James Kitfield, author of the new book, "In The Company Of Heroes."
It is one of the worst acts of racial violence in the history of the United States. But even those from Oklahoma, and Tulsa, itself, often know little about the events surrounding the Tulsa Race Masscare that began on May 31st, 1921.
