This British alternative history drama explores how crime writer Agatha Christie became embroiled in a real-life murder case during her 11-day disappearance in 1926. The film depicts Christie investigating the murder of Florence Nightingale's goddaughter and reveals how her involvement in the case influenced her subsequent writing. The murder of Florence Nightingale Shore and the character of Mabel Rogers are based on real people and events. Hardcore Christie fans should watch for Easter Eggs!

THE TULSA RACE MASSACRE - 100 YEARS LATER

TULSA: THE FIRE AND THE FORGOTTEN
Monday 8pm

One of the worst incidents of racial violence in American history occurred 100 years ago, May 31-June 1, 1921. Known as the Tulsa Race Massacre, a mob of white residents set fire to “Black Wall Street”—hundreds of Black-owned businesses and homes in the Greenwood district of Tulsa, Oklahoma—killing an estimated 100-300 Black residents and leaving an estimated 10,000 Black residents homeless.

This explosion of racial terror was compounded by the silence that followed. No one was punished for the crimes committed, and history textbooks often made no reference to them, so many Americans are still unaware of this history. In Tulsa: The Fire and the Forgotten, The Washington Post reporter DeNeen L. Brown interviews descendants of Greenwood residents and business owners and today’s community activists. She asks them about the city’s 2018 decision to search for mass graves from 1921, community demands for reparations and today’s efforts to revive the Black district of Greenwood through education, technology, business development and more. The documentary also explores issues of atonement, reconciliation and reparation in the past, present and future through the historical lens of white violence and Black resistance.
