Is the Tulsa Race Massacre on Watchmen based on real events?

Unfortunately, yes. If you’ve ever heard of “Black Wall Street,” it was an affluent community in Tulsa, Oklahoma that was predominantly African American with a thriving business center and many well-to-do families who, despite tense race relations between whites and blacks, thrived. 

Sadly, between May 31st and June 1st, 1921, a massive riot broke out.
