TULSA, Oklahoma – Jeana Dorsey recuerda a sus abuelos que sobrevivieron a la masacre de Tulsa Race de 1921.

Dorsey es maestra de geografía de sexto y séptimo grado en Carver Middle School.

Dorsey dice que su abuela Rosa Davis Skinner y su abuelo Thomas Robert (se hace llamar T.R.) Davis tenían 21 y 35 años respectivamente cuando ocurrió la Masacre de Tulsa Race en 1921.

Millie Vickers es empleada de oficina en Carver Middle School. Rosa y T.R. aquí eran bisabuelos.

Vickers dice: a medida que nos acercamos a la masacre, ellos recuerdan la terrible tragedia y cómo sobrevivió su familia.

Vickers dice T.R. le dijo a la congregación de su iglesia en Paradise Baptist Church, solo unos días antes de la masacre que tenía un sueño de que se avecinaba una tormenta que predecía los eventos de la masacre en Greenwood.

La foto de Rosa Davis Skinner está colgada en el Museo Nacional de Historia y Cultura Afroamericana en Washington D.C.

Rosa falleció en 1995 a los 96 años.

T.R. falleció en la década de 1940 antes de que la mayoría de los nietos lo conocieran.
