As we celebrate the seventh anniversary of Voices of Oklahoma, we give thanks to those who have recorded their oral histories for our future generations. Nearly two hundred Oklahomans have become the storytellers of their own experiences. The online collection covers many topics, but the strengths are in World War II history, Oklahoma political history, Oklahoma business history, and civil rights history.
On April 10, 2010 we launched our first oral history interview with the first female chief of the Cherokee nation, Wilma Mankiller. You honor her as you listen to her inspiring story.
We look forward to another year of collecting and archiving Oklahoma stories for VoicesofOklahoma.com where it is our mission to preserve Oklahoma’s legacy, one voice at a time.
Voices of Oklahoma is a proud partner with the Oklahoma Center for the Humanities at the University of Tulsa.
