AFRICANGLOBE - One of the last survivors of the 1921 Tulsa race riot, one of the worst race riots in U.S. history, has died at age 103. Olivia Hooker was 6 years old when the late-spring riot destroyed much of a Tulsa neighborhood that had been known as “Black Wall Street.” She told National Public Radio in an interview this year that she hid under a table as a mob of torch-carrying white people destroyed her family’s home.
