Oklahoma News Report


The Special Session wraps up with more than a little political wrangling and debate, and we speak with eCapitol News Director Shawn Ashley about the final week at the capitol. Reporter Bob Sands meets the retired attorney who's keeping the lawmakers honest, and answers the question: who is Jerry Fent? Local legislators work up different plans for the same goal--putting storm shelters in Oklahoma's schools. But as we learn from StateImpact's Logan Layden, many school districts aren't waiting for the legislature to make their schools safer. Plus, a look at the state's nursing home ranking, advances in brain tumor treatment, and a trip to the movies...or at least in search of a set, on this episode of the ONR.

Black Townships in Oklahoma

In a pre-statehood Indian Territory, many African-Americans banded together to form towns free of racism and prejudice, places where their children didn't experience discrimination until they left town. Now many of these historic townships are dwindling, but their lessons carry on.

Greenwood Yesterday and Today

Featured in Top Stories

The district where Tulsa's 1921 Race Riots occurred is close to being added to the National Registry of Historic Places, but controversy over the project abounds. Greenwood community leaders are concerned parts of the district once dubbed 'America's Black Wall Street' will be left out in favor of sections of Tulsa's downtown in order to meet a historic building requirement for the Registry. Ironically, the reason Greenwood doesn't have the required historical buildings is because many were razed during the Race Riots. But out of the ashes of those razed buildings and broken dreams rose a cultural epicenter, now flourishing with restaurants, recreational activities, and monuments to a harrowing moment in Tulsa's past.
