A state commission recommended Friday that reparations be paid for one of the nation's deadliest racial clashes: a little-known 1921 rampage by a white Tulsa mob that killed as many as 300 people, most of them black. The 11-member panel called for direct payments to survivors and victims' descendants, scholarships and a tax checkoff program to fund economic development in Tulsa's mostly black Greenwood area and a memorial to the dead.

Somewhere beneath the gentle knolls and hospitable oaks that dot this prairie city, anthropologist Clyde Snow is preparing to find bones--and proof of tragedy buried for three-quarters of a century. Snow, the world's leading forensic anthropologist, has dug up remains from the world's dirtiest wars over the last 15 years. He's trained Argentine human rights workers to dig for their country's desaparecidos. In El Salvador, he's exhumed massacre victims.

Survivors of the 1921 Tulsa race riot who were invited to testify before a commission investigating the clash instead listened in silence Monday as a historian detailed the horrors. Scott Ellsworth, who wrote a book on the riot, now believes it was the worst incident of racial violence in U.S. history. At least 200 to 300 people, mostly blacks, are believed to have perished. As many as 10,000 white men and boys gathered to attack the black community, Ellsworth said.

Wayne and Kathy Harris issued the statement through their attorney, Benjamin Colkitt, after journal excerpts were published in several newspapers this week. Colkitt said that neither he nor the Harrises would comment beyond the two-paragraph statement.
