Vernon, Oklahoma, A Pastor Forgives


As part of the Oklahoma Black Towns project, www.struggleandhope.com, I am helping make short videos about each of the remaining towns, in anticipation of a full-length documentary due in 2016. The latest short video is about the smallest of the remaining towns, Vernon, with a population of about 25, and its charismatic pastor, Anderson Fields, who has amazing stories to tell, and has learned to forgive the past bigotry he had to endure.
