    We visit Cain’s Ballroom, which sits just north of downtown Tulsa, in the Brady Arts District. For decades, Cain’s was the “Carnegie Hall of Western Swing,” an eclectic homegrown tradition that blended musical styles from all over the region. The front of Cain’s Ballroom is engraved with a sign that says, “Brady, 1924.” Like a bunch of buildings in the area, Cain’s was originally built by one of the city’s founding fathers, Tate Brady, who’s been in the news again lately for his controversial past. Then we remember the 1921 race riot, one of the biggest incidents of racial violence in this country's history.
