Did you know that as many as 50 African American-only communities arose in Oklahoma Territory shortly after the Land Run? This and other facts are featured in two upcoming exhibits that explore the history of African Americans in Oklahoma Territory before statehood. The All-Black Towns of Oklahoma Exhibit will run simultaneously, Dec. 3 through Jan. 30, with African American Education: From Pre-Statehood to Present. The exhibits take visitors back in time, offering insight into African Americans’ lives and education in early Oklahoma.
As part of the African American Education exhibit, Lifelong Educator Dr. Donnie L. Nero will give a presentation at 1:30 p.m. Jan. 30, 2020. He will discuss education development, highlighting his personal experiences during the age of school segregation.
The All-Black Towns of Oklahoma Exhibit is part of the Oklahoma History Center Traveling Exhibit Program. For more information about this program or other traveling exhibits, call 405-522-0780.
The year 2020 is one that aims at massive changes to Oklahoma’s educational institutions, its public service sector, and even its governing bodies–changes that proclaim to be “data-driven” and “evidence-based” and that hold out the promise of an efficient, transparent, and equitable future. A new mode of social service finance and delivery – the Pay for Success contract (PFS) – is at the heart of these changes. This conference gathers together experts in social service finance (the PFS model), Oklahoma educators and policy advocates from PreK through university, journalists, and concerned citizens and parents in order to explore what effect these massive changes will have on Oklahoma’s children, on the quality of Oklahoma’s public services, and on the vitality of representative government in our State.
