In the 80's, Oklahoma's prison population showed a disparity in racial representation with the number of minorities in state jails disproportionately high and the number of whites fairly low.

Diversity in Oklahoma

Oklahoma is one of the most ethnically and racially diverse states in the U.S.; not just one group, but a combination of many. American Indians, African Americans, Asian and Pacific Islanders, and Latinos comprise one-fourth of the state's population. And that segment is getting larger - 47% of Oklahoma public school students are non-white. So today, we discuss diversity and Oklahoma's growing minorities, with our guests: Colonel Stan Evans, former Dean of Dtudents at the OU College of Law and former member of the Oklahoma Human Rights Commission; Jana Lewis Harkins, advocate for African-American and women's rights; Ruben Aragon, President and CEO of the Latino Community Development Agency; and Sarah Adams-Cornell, Native American advocate and member of the Oklahoma City Choctaw Tribal Alliance.
