Tulsa Race Massacre survivor 'Mother Randle' celebrates 107th birthday

One of the last three known survivors of the Tulsa Race Massacre recently celebrated their 107th birthday.

Lessie Benningfield, better known to the community as "Mother Randle," celebrated her birthday on Wednesday, November 10th.

The Justice for Greenwood Foundation celebrated Mother Randle by hosting a drive-by birthday party, where people were able to drop off special notes for her to read.

When Mother Randle was just 7-years-old, her grandmother's house was destroyed during the massacre that lasted for three days.
