Early Oklahoma: Black Hope and Black Dreams

A place of accomplishment lives within the walls of the Oklahoma History Museum. The “Early Oklahoma: Black Hope/Black Dreams” exhibit features three key figures who paved the way for African Americans in Oklahoma.

• Edward McCabe: With experience in both finance and land development, McCabe helped African Americans establish their own towns.
•  Roscoe Dunjee: Being only one generation removed from slavery, Dunjee used his own newspaper to fight for civil rights.
•  Ada Lois Sipuel Fisher: As the first African American admitted to the University of Oklahoma Law School, she served as a prime example of what it means to be opportunity-driven.
