We are going to miss you so much Cece Jones-Davis!

It’s hard to believe this is my last episode as founding co-host of the United Voice Oklahoma Podcast, which will always have a piece of my heart. This show has been a labor of love and a grassroots effort to promote healthy dialogue on race relations in Oklahoma. I could not be prouder to be a part of putting this wisdom out into the world. Join us as we talk election, our cultural moment, and our major life transitions up ahead.

BlackSpace Oklahoma

Beautiful video, and a worthy effort to support!

Deep Deuce Drive-in attendees had the opportunity to see this short film on the partnership between Jewel Theatre OKC and BlackSpace OKC to kick off family movie night.

Built in 1931, the Jewel Theatre was a safe space for patrons to enjoy entertainment while not policed by Jim Crow laws. The theater was once part of a booming stretch of retail and community centers that included restaurants, barbershops, doctor's offices, a grocery and hotels along NE 4th Street.

BlackSpace is a collective of architects, planners, urban designers, artists, and curators of all kinds to create and protect Black spaces. Watch this short-film produced and directed by Stout.media to learn more about this historic landmark in NEOKC and how BlackSpace OKC is working to save Oklahoma's Black spaces.
