Then, Oklahoma passed a law that allowed white settlers to seize control of the land by appointing white “guardians” to children whose land struck oil. “We’re talking about millions and millions of dollars,” says Raven Majia Williams, a descendant of survivor AJ Smitherman. “And not in today’s money; in THAT day’s money.”
