Race Relations & the March on Washington

August 28th is the 50th anniversary of the "I Have A Dream" speech at the 1963 March on Washington. That speech led to a greater awareness of race relations and passage of the Civil Rights Act and Voting Rights Act over the next two years. But civil rights is a work in progress, and today we discuss the speech and where race relations have come over the last half-century, with Currie Ballard, historian and producer of the Emmy award-winning "Ebony Chronicles"; Joyce Henderson, retired educator who attended the March on Washington as a high school student in Oklahoma City; Dr. Pauline Harris, Human Rights Coordinator for Tulsa Public Schools and Professor of African-American Studies at Tulsa Community College; and, State Representative Mike Shelton, democrat from Oklahoma City, a graduate of Langston University and a member of the legislative black caucus.

Another big decision made by the Supreme Court this week was on the Baby Veronica case, a lawsuit dealing with custody rights between an adoptive couple and the child's Native American father. As much as the case dealt with custody, it dealt with a little-known law--the Indian Child Welfare Act. OU law professor Taiawagi Helton explains.

In this ONR, we look at Oklahoma's ongoing water wars. While the Supreme Court has handed down a ruling on the case between Oklahoma and Texas, more arguments over water are brewing, and these pit Oklahoman against Oklahoman. Water has been a huge boon to the state's wheat crop, which has experienced a huge turnaround from its previously dreary expectations due to recent rains. Oklahoma is home to more than 30 recognized tribes, and each has it's own way to determine who is or is not a member. ONR's Lis Exon explains. Plus, immigration bills and healthcare access, 50 years of the Equal Pay Act, a look at Tulsa's revived downtown and more on this ONR.

In this ONR, the Comanche tribe and the military are locked in a modern day battle over rights and access to a tribal burial ground. While the military works to sort out that legal battle, new ones could soon be brewing for the federal government over the revealed NSA spying program, as law professor Joseph Thai explains. Meanwhile, protesters rally across the state to slow construction on legs of the Keystone XL Pipeline. All that, plus the rescue of animals caught in Oklahoma's recent tornadoes, the state's decisive victory in a legal battle over water, the wonderful world of paintball, and more on this ONR.
