Sarah Rector, an 11-year-old black girl became
the "richest colored girl in the world" in 1913,
when oil was found on the land that the
government had allotted to her family. By the
time she turned 18, Rector was already a
millionaire and was so rich that the Oklahoma
Legislature declared her as a white person.
I would like to award) you
the highest honor I can bestow.
