    One of many uncomfortable truths about race in the US is that several Native American tribes once owned Black slaves.

    After the civil war, they were forced to end the practice and granted their slaves full citizenship, but over the years, they stripped Black tribal members of their rights.

    Al Jazeera’s Shihab Rattansi reports from Oklahoma on how they are trying to win those rights back.
