Two American siblings who survived a well documented massacre of Black people in the US city of Tulsa in Oklahoma have rounded up a visit to Ghana by accepting to be citizens of Ghana.

107-year-old Viola Fletcher and her brother, 100-year-old Van Ellis are quoted to have said: « We accept it with great joy and we thank the president for this great honour. »

They arrived in Ghana earlier this week as part of a tour of the continent to mark the 100-year anniversary of the 1921 incident popularly referred to as the Tulsa Race Massacre.
