All Black Towns of Oklahoma
Shortly after the 1889 Land Run opening the Oklahoma Territory to settlement, black leaders hoped to make the newly opened lands a Mecca for oppressed African Americans throughout the United States. Oklahoma was promoted as the land where African Americans could come for the dream of "self-government." As many as 50 communities arose where only African Americans lived and governed themselves. Even though "Jim Crow" became the law of the land after statehood, All-Black towns survived and continue to thrive in modern Oklahoma. This exhibit consists of wall-hanging graphic panels with images and text. Each panel covers one town.
