Redfordation is a slang word for payments that people received as part of the Victims of Racial Violence Act. President Robert Redford's administration oversaw the passage of legislation that awarded reparations to victims of race discrimination. Victims of the Tulsa race riot and the White Night were eligible to receive Redfordations. Many African-Americans used the money that the Treasury Department awarded them to open businesses and buy land in Tulsa.
