Hey y'all, I'm back for my final session of this #CiteBlackWomen Twitter takeover. Let's start with more resources.
The Okla. Historical Society @okhistory has put together a fantastic collection of resources about African American history in the state. As they state plainly...
"Black History is Oklahoma History." I’m (@melissanstuckey) looking forward to working with them even more in the future. #Juneteenth #CiteBlackWomen
More for your summer reading list can be found at the end of my blog…

Get yourself all the way together with scholarship by Brittney C. Cooper @professorcrunk, Deirdre Cooper Owens, Kellie Carter Jackson, Sarah Haley @sahaley, and Arica L. Coleman @ALCPHD.

Hey y'all, @melissanstuckey is back for another session!
#Juneteenth originated in Texas! But Emancipation meant Black people had the freedom to move and they did. In the 1890s and 1900s Black Texans moved to Oklahoma and brought Juneteenth with them.
Take a look at a piece near and dear to my heart. It's called "The Boley Rodeo: A Juneteenth Like No Other" I wrote it for @newterritorymag. Find it here:
Read it and let's talk about it! T/Y @DrMChatelain for connecting me to @Gasconader! #CiteBlackWomen
@DrMChatelain is a brilliant black historian and author of two books!
Franchise: The Golden Arches in Black America
South Side Girls: Growing up in the Great Migration.

Add these to your summer reading list.

The women in the photograph are Martha and Pinkie Yates. Their buggy, decorated with fresh flowers, is #Juneteenth parade ready!

#SeptimaClark's papers at @avery_tweets and LDHI are two important archives of her intellectual production. Her writings reflect the depth of her brilliance and political savvy.… #MLKDay #CiteBlackWomen
For example, her handwritten essay "Good-bye Jim Crow" encapsulates her analysis of the political reverberations of the Civil Rights Movement and its impact on U.S. society. #MLKDay #CiteBlackWomen…
Black women wrote, theorized, and organized throughout the 1960's with Dr. King, not in his shadow. It's important to remember that, and remember that the ideas and politics that emerged from this moment that we celebrate today were built out of community. #Mlk #CiteBlackWomen
