Honoring The Black Wall Street Survivors

Mrs. Viola Ford Fletcher, was born May 10, 1914, and is one of the last known survivors of the 1921 Race Massacre in Tulsa, Oklahoma, she has been blessed by God to see 107 years of sunsets and sunrises. She has outlasted a tragedy, and her very life is a triumph after witnessing one of the deadliest massacres and darkest chapters in American history.

Mrs. Viola comes from an extraordinary generation, her family persevered and rebuilt, and she endured the Massacre, the Dust Bowl, and served selflessly as a Rosie during World War II. Her ancestors created historic economic wealth through a community of black-owned businesses in the Greenwood District, and she honors their legacy through service to others. She now reflects and shares a lifetime of experiences and achievements, and her breadth of knowledge and wisdom makes her a national treasure.

Mrs. Viola Ford Fletcher models the ability to prevail through life's challenges, she is able to say, "I survived." She is a living-testament to the rich legacy of our ancestors and deepens the awareness of descendants to fight forward towards economic empowerment and social justice. Beyond surviving, Mrs. Viola Ford Fletcher is an overcomer.
