Join the Oklahoma Historical Society for the Oklahoma African American Film Festival, featuring a lineup of documentaries and historic footage, along with a discussion led by author Art Burton. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s festival will be held virtually. 

This year's theme “Blacks on the Oklahoma Frontier" explores the long history of African Americans in Western culture. Topics will include notorious outlaws such as Crawford Goldsby, better known as Cherokee Bill, and fearless lawmen like Deputy US Marshal Bass Reeves. The festival will also include video footage of local rodeos and Round-Up Clubs like the Boley Rough Riders, who were involved in Oklahoma’s oldest rodeo in the all-black town of Boley.

A link to view the Oklahoma African American Film Festival will be available beginning February 5 in the event listing on the OHS Calendar of Events.
