Synopsis

Hate Crimes in the Heartland portrays the epidemic of hate crimes through the lens of two distinct crimes that took place in Tulsa, Oklahoma: The 1921 Tulsa Race Riot and the 2012 Good Friday Murders. The film reveals the role of the media- then and now-in controlling both public opinion and the justice system. Tulsa serves as a microcosm of America's obsession with media, race, crime and punishment with compelling stories over a 90 year period.
