In this episode of Behind the Headlines, host Teri Barr talks with Tulsa World Editor Jason Collington and reporters Randy Krehbiel and Kendrick Marshall.  They share some of the new information learned while covering the anniversary of the Tulsa Race Massacre this year, along with the many things that remain unknown, and why a search for answers still continues.
