Tulsa race massacre survivors visit Ghana, accept citizenship
Two survivors of the 1921 Tulsa race massacre in Oklahoma, United States of America are currently touring Ghana, their first visit to the continent.
Viola Ford Fletcher, 107 and her brother Hughes Van Ellis, 100 are the last two known living survivors of the 1921 racist massacre in Tulsa.
They had visited Ghana to mark the centenary of the Tulsa Race Massacre, which saw hundreds of black people murdered and properties and businesses belonging to blacks destroyed during the massacre.
The duo, who has been in the African country since last weekend for a tour of Africa, visited historic sites such as the Osu Castle Dungeon, where they decried the horrors of slavery.
The centenarians called for African unity, just as they also laid a wreath at the tomb of the Pan-African human rights activist W.E.B. Du Bois.
During their visit to the Nigerian Igbo community in Ghana, the duo who also paid a courtesy call to President Nana Akufo-Addo, were crowned honorary chief and queen mother.
