The Oklahoma Center for the Humanities is staging Oklahoma! with an all African-American cast.  I'm looking forward to the performance.

Oklahoma! in Concert was chosen based on the OCH theme of Homelands and the historic all-black towns that once thrived, and still, to some extent, survive here in the state. The discussion with the cast about an all-black Oklahoma! turned to excitement. Everyone needs their own space. Their own place to belong. Where is your beginning? Where is your start? For most of us, it meant a place where you can grow while surrounded by people who are like you. Home is what you make it, and it’s what makes you.
