Struggle and Hope: Honoring a Black Teacher


As part of the Struggle and Hope web, documentary project on Oklahoma's still surviving all-black towns, here's a short documentary, highlighting the Oklahoma African American Educators Hall of Fame and one of its recent inductees, the late Lola Parker Dean. She fought for her job and those of other black teachers after desegregation. As the United States goes through more pivotal moments in tense race relations, it's important to have a better knowledge of history, deeper into the people's history, so that we make progress and strive toward a future where color is only a positive.
