  • I believe the woman is Abbey Lincoln.
  • The woman who played the Oracle was the late Gloria Foster. She passed away in 2001.
  • The woman is an actress named Venida Evans. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0263287/ She's done a bunch of tv, most recently an episode of Law & Order SVU and was in the movie Transamerica. Unfortunately, Gloria Foster from The Matrix died in 2001.
  • No. Gloria Foster was The Oracle in the Matrix and she's passed away now. The woman in the Ikea commercials is Venida Evans.
