Explorations in Sights and Sounds
Journey Toward Hope is a welcome volume on blacks west of the Mississippi. The author has effectively demonstrated how Oklahoma's geography, between the West and the South, was responsible for its segregated development; white Oklahomans chose the racial customs, policies, and institutions of the Deep South to “keep Blacks in their place."
