 And My Spirit Said Yes!  The African-American Experience:  Visions of the Past and Present,”  features over thirty men and women who have made significant contributions to the history of the North Tulsa, Tulsa and Oklahoma communities.

Praise from Barbara Seals Nevergold, Co-founder of Uncrowned Queens Institute, Buffalo, New York says “For too long Historians have ignored the importance of documenting the histories of the everyday man and woman who have contributed to the historic records of their communities.  Andy My Spirit Said, Yes! is a compilation of the biographical sketches and photos of  African American Oklahoma Community Leaders.  Mr. Thompson has made a significant contribution by collecting; preserving and creating an accessible file of regional African American history that otherwise might be lost.”

Don Thompson’s photography has been selected to appear in the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C. which will open in 2016.  Don is the author of Hush Somebody’s Callin’ My Name, member of Tulsa Artist Coalition, Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition, Philbrook Museum and other community organizations.  Books will be available for purchase at the event for $20.00 and applicable tax.

Books can also be purchased from Natural Health on Greenwood, Inc., 112 North Greenwood Ave., Full Circle Bookstore, 50 Penn Place, 1900 NW Expressway, Oklahoma City and Amazon.com
