Format: Hardcover
Journey Toward Hope is a history of African-Americans in Oklahoma, emphasizing the period after statehood (post-1907). Race relations and segregation are detailed in this period of Jim Crow laws. This is a little-told part of Oklahoma's history and one that needs to be more broadly understood. African-Americans in Oklahoma faced many of the same prejudices and difficulties that Blacks faced in the Deep South, but also were able to maintain a high level of involvement and activism in securing their full participation in American society. Ground-breaking court cases that eventually led to the dramatic Supreme Court ruling of Brown v. Board of Education and culminated in the 1964 Civil Rights Act are presented in an interesting writing style that never gets bogged down in legal-ese. This is a personal story of people and the contributions they made to improve their lives and their communities, improving their country in the process. It is well written with good notes on sources, of which the majority are primary, with some personal interviews between the author and the historical figures. Journey Toward Hope is a very good account of a little-told part of Oklahoma history and American history and well worth the read.

Very well written and scholarly, perfect for use in my Master's thesis. Extensive notes and substantial index make for the first, but hopefully not the last, research, synthesis is how the author began it, in the saga of America. In examining the history of civil rights and slavery in its evolution in Indian Territory, the author must necessarily incorporate a broader view of America, its bigotry and hopefully, its recovery from such.
