The TCC Library does not have access to the historical run of the Tulsa Tribune or Tulsa World going back this far.  However, you can access  archived newspaper microfiche and historic clippings via Central Library, Tulsa City-County Library.  The TCCL catalog indicates that they have historic coverage on microfilm for both the Tulsa Tribune and Tulsa World.  You can contact TCCL's AskUs hotline 918-549-7323 for more detailed information of holdings/availability/access.  TCCL also has a local history librarian on staff if you have additional questions about accessing Tulsa history resources available from TCCL.   Please see the TCCL catalog links below, as well as links to two sources available from the Tulsa World's website.

Also available from TCCL is a very helpful Tulsa and Oklahoma History research guide, link provided.

The Tulsa World provides fairly detailed information on their current website:

Timeline: The 1921 Tulsa race massacre https://www.tulsaworld.com/news/local/racemassacre/timeline-the-tulsa-race-massacre/collection_1c02a7b4-86ce-11e8-b63d-c3bbb45d4a6c.html?utm_medium=social&utm_source=email&utm_campaign=user-share#1

A recent Tulsa World article traced the history of the 1921 racial violence and included details of newspaper coverage from the time:
