NBA legend Kevin Johnson’s Fixins Soul Kitchen said it’s focused on bringing attention to the history of the Tulsa Race Massacre. That’s why three survivors were invited to the establishment’s ribbon cutting on Wednesday.

After the ribbon cutting, survivors Hughes Van Ellis, Viola Fletcher, and Lessie Randle were the first to eat at the restaurant.

The restaurant said it will donate a portion of its opening week’s profits to Greenwood Rising and the Thunder Fellows Program.

Fixins said these partnerships will continue to work hand-in-hand to serve the community and develop youth to offer them a better future.

“We’re always going to be able to have a partner to build and grow our youth. One way we do it is we keep them out of the streets, keep them working, give them a job, skillset,” General Manager Derek Allen said. “They may not necessarily want to be in the restaurant business, but at least they’ll have the opportunity to be able to learn how to work.”

Fixins Soul Kitchen will open to the public on June 12.
