TULSA, Okla. (AP) — Grammy-award winning singer John Legend will headline a nationally televised event marking the 100th anniversary of the Tulsa Race Massacre.

Tulsa Race Massacre Centennial Commission director Phil Armstrong told the Tulsa World on Friday that Legend will headline the Remember & Rise event on May 31st at ONEOK Field.
