A rollback to racial integration


Letters to the Editor

Tamya Cox
At the American Civil Liberties Union, we aren’t sure if Sen. Rob Johnson’s attempt to end affirmative action in Oklahoma is a joke, or if he is truly naïve enough to believe that Senate Joint Resolution 15 will end discrimination and increase diversity in Oklahoma.

Django Unchained

The 'D' is silent; the movie is not.


Western

Rod Lott
As he did with 2009’s Inglourious Basterds, superstar filmmaker Quentin Tarantino looked to Italy for primary inspiration for his follow-up. In Django Unchained, he’s cribbed the country’s spaghetti Western genre, shoehorned the all-American slavesploitation film into its center, and rewritten another ugly chapter in world history while filtering it all through his Movies Unlimited catalog lens.

Glorious resurrection

Local attorney restores Calvary Baptist Church and turns it into the home of his business while keeping its civil rights history intact.


News

Tim Farley
But that was more than half a century ago, when the church was a key part of the Oklahoma City black community and the civil rights movement. There, King preached a sermon as an audition to be the church’s full-time pastor. Ironically, church leaders thought King was too young to lead a congregation of that size.
