Chautauqua was a popular adult education movement in the United States in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. This education movement persists for all ages today at the Winter Chautauqua in Enid.

This is an exciting event with two workshops and a fascinating evening presentation on Northwestern Oklahoma State University's campus. This event celebrates culture and heritage, with a goal to further understanding of history through entertainment, lectures and concerts. Don't miss this chance to learn something new and participate in a piece of history.

This year, Vanessa Adams-Harris will portray Big Mama in Hannibal Johnson's "Big Mama Speaks - A 1921 Tulsa Race Riot Survivor." Following this 40-minute historical presentation, there will be a Q&A where Big Mama will answer questions in character, then Adams-Harris will answer questions as a scholar. Visit Enid for the special one-day showing of Winter Chautauqua.
