Guthrie's Harriet Kennedy

There was a lovely article in The Guthrie News by Rex Hogan on Sunday January 28, 2007 about Harriett Kennedy, an African-American business woman who advanced racial integration in Guthrie. She moved to Guthrie in 1946 and opened a restaurant making her (it is believed) the first African-American woman to open a business in Guthrie. She ran several businesses but the one she is most famous for was the H and A Supper Club on the 400 block of Drexel Street.
