George Henderson (57:50)

George Henderson grew up in Alabama during the Great Depression. The son of sharecroppers, he was expected to rise above his surroundings and pull his family out of poverty. After fleeing to the Midwest, he graduated from college, served in the Air Force and became an educator and community activist. In 1967, Henderson accepted a job as professor at the University of Oklahoma, a place his mentor warned was “a small redneck school in a backward state.” Henderson moved his family into a state and city that was not yet ready for the change he was destined to bring, and began his life’s work. Against the odds, Henderson courageously confronted “institutionalized racism” and led the movement for racial equality at the university and across the state. Henderson inspired his students to chip away at the formidable color barrier that stood in their way and established a new era of human relations in Oklahoma. In celebration of Black History Month, George Henderson shares his experiences in the struggle for civil rights with Dick Pryor in the new OETA production, “A Conversation With….George Henderson.” “A Conversation With…George Henderson” provides a unique and deeply personal account of Oklahoma history through the eyes of one of the nation’s most eloquent and respected civil rights scholars.
