On this episode, we take a deep dive into House Bill 1775, its authors, its opponents and its repercussions in classrooms across the state. We also speak with two Oklahoma City activists who met with a state legislator following the lawmaker's controversial remarks about the Black Lives Matter movement, and we visit Turley to better understand why it's a town, but it's also not. We examine homelessness and food insecurity in Lawton, and we celebrate a poet and professor who is now also a NAACP Image Award winner. In the second installment of our series "Blacks and Cannabis," we hear the experiences of a North Tulsa based dispensary owner who opened his doors during the pandemic and the community activist who never wanted those doors opened. All of this and more on Focus: Black Oklahoma.
