Three Oklahoma Women Inducted Into Oklahoma African-American Hall of Fame

The Ntu Art Association of Oklahoma recently inducted six into the Oklahoma African-American Hall of Fame including Nancy Randolph-Davis, Lilliantyne Williams-Fields and (posthumously) Emma Lee Jones-Freeman. Randolph-Davis was the first black enrollee at Oklahoma State University. Williams-Fields has served more than 23 years as a biological sciences educator, serving on two national committees for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  The late Jones-Freeman was a veteran educator who won a lawsuit against the Oklahoma City School Board, which resulted in equal pay for black teachers in Oklahoma.
