Focus: Black Oklahoma co-host Kolby Webster

On this episode of Focus: Black Oklahoma, we dive into the complications and chemicals of capital punishment with Carlos Moreno, and Dr. Nick Alexandrov investigates healthcare as reparations.

Focus: Black Oklahoma has been selected to participate in the Advancing Democracy cohort with the Solutions Journalism Network, or SJN. Our series "In a Confused State" follows Oklahoma advocacy groups navigating new restrictions on freedoms in three areas: reproductive rights, teaching history, and direct action/activism. In this installment Shalondra Harrison breaks down the anti-protest laws that now significantly impact our communities.

Crystal Patrick uncovers some unrecognized contributions of Black WWII veterans and Britny Cordera explores the challenges of keeping Native languages alive.

All of this and more on Focus: Black Oklahoma.
