38. Rubber Soul was my very first Beatles album. I picked it up at a thrift shop in Oklahoma City sometime in the mid-70s for maybe 50 cents. It was, of course, the US edition, and from the first chiming notes of the intro to "I've Just Seen A Face," I was hopelessly hooked, and have been ever since. Beatles 4-Ever!
The Tulsa Riot of 1921 This is the worst riot in american history. 15,000 African Americans were left homeless, between 300 and 3000 were killed, wounded and/or missing, 1500 homes were burned to the ground and over 600 Black owned businesses in a 35 square block area were bombed in the all Black Greenwood District of Tulsa, Oklahoma. It was the first american city to be bombed by airplanes. More people died this day than in any single event since the civil war.
