All-Black Towns of Oklahoma: An Exhibit at the Zarrow Center
January 6-February 25Free
In the early 1900s, there were as many as 50 all-black towns in Oklahoma. Black Oklahomans created spaces to offer safety, opportunity and freedom to their communities. Over the course of the century, the number and sizes of these towns shrank drastically. Only 13 of the original 50 exist today. Seeking to shed light on their foundations and their potential, this exhibit explores the contours of life in the All-Black Towns of Oklahoma.
This exhibit is free and open to the public. The Zarrow Center is open Wednesday-Saturday, 12-5 p.m.
