On Friday, May 28th a very special public hearing and news event relating to the Tulsa Massacre of 1921 is taking place on the eve of the 100-year anniversary of the Tulsa Massacre on Black Wall Street. The talk of Reparations for the Tulsa Massacre is everywhere and recently 107-year-old Viola Fletcher testified before Congress: “I still see Black men being shot, black bodies lying in the street. I still smell smoke and see fire. I still see Black businesses being burned. I still hear airplanes flying overhead. I hear the screams,” Viola Fletcher, said in the CBS News video. “I have lived through the massacre every day.”
