Reparation Case For Surviving Tulsa Race Massacre Thrown Out

An Oklahoma judge has thrown out a lawsuit seeking reparations for the last living survivors of the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre, dashing any hope of justice for the elderly victims of the deadly racist rampage.

Judge Caroline Wall dismissed with prejudice the lawsuit trying to force the city and others to make recompense for the destruction of the once-thriving Black district known as Greenwood.

The order comes in a case by three survivors of the attack, who are all now aged over 100 years old and sued in 2020 with the hope of seeing what their attorney called “justice in their lifetime.”

Spokespersons for the city of Tulsa and a lawyer for the survivors — Lessie Benningfield Randle, Viola Fletcher, and Hughes Van Ellis — did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
