Learn about Oklahoma's African-American history during the All-Black Towns Bus Tour. Between 1865 and 1915, there were roughly 60 black towns settled in the United States, and Oklahoma led all the other states with more than 20 within its borders. Learn the fascinating history of these towns on this unique tour. Two buses, each with a historian aboard, will take visitors to traditionally all-black towns in Oklahoma. Once there, local historians and citizens will tell the guests the history of their town and their part in Oklahoma's history. Enjoy a serenade by Blues Hall of Famer and historian Harold Aldridge, along with historians Shirley Nero and Jimmie White.

This all-day tour event departs from Tulsa, and breakfast and lunch will be provided. Possible towns included in this tour are Tullahassee, Summitt, Rentiesville, the site of the Battle of Honey Springs and the black community of Warrior, Oklahoma. Space is limited, so please purchase tickets in advance. Tickets are non-refundable; first come, first sold.
