Untold Stories

Have you ever wanted to learn about the Tulsa Massacre? Have you ever wanted to talk to those who lived through history – and hear their stories, their voices, their perspectives? The Tulsa Race Massacre happened over a hundred years ago, but that doesn’t mean you only need to read about this in the history books. StoryFile had the honor of capturing the stories of the oldest living survivors of the Tulsa Race Massacre, Mother Viola Fletcher and Mother Lessie Benningfield Randle. They shared their life experiences with StoryFile, and now they are available for the world to talk to, learn from, and have conversations with. It is inspiring to listen to their stories and hear the hope these two strong Black women have for the world.

Ask them questions like:

What was it like growing up?

Where were you when the Tulsa Race Massacre happened?

What was Black Wall Street?

What was life like before the Tulsa Race Massacre?
