Vanessa Harris-Jackson book signing

6:30-8:30 p.m., Thursday September 05

The program includes a one-woman play by Ms. Vanessa Harris-Jackson. The play features the events surrounding the integration of the University of Oklahoma Law School by Mrs. Ada Lois Fisher. The law suit filed by Mrs. Fisher was advocated by the late U.S. Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall. This was a major case test for the Brown vs. Board of Education that abolished separate but equal. We need to know our history, “ said Bill Broiles, Ntu Art Association of Oklahoma, Inc.

There are 51 legends in the Oklahoma African-American Hall of Fame. This is our first book. We hope that we get the story of the accomplishments of Hall of Fame honorees out into the community, especially in light of the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington. Many of our honorees were involved in the March, as well as the civil rights movement here in Oklahoma. There are 21 legends still with us and some have agreed to participate in this book signing event. This is a unique opportunity to meet them and get a personal, signed copy of Oklahoma Legends.

This is not just history, this is also about our future.

The event is free and open to the public. Books will be sold at the event. The book will also be available through after October 1st.
