TULSA, OK -- A survivor of Tulsa's Race Riot will be remembered Tuesday.

Thelma Knight was 6-years-old when the city erupted in race-based violence. She died last week in Dallas.

Knight testified before the Supreme Court when the case for race riot reparations was formally presented.

Her story was told in a PBS documentary "Before They Die."

Knight's funeral will be held Tuesday morning at First Baptist Church of North Tulsa.
