Living History Performance – Bass Reeves

April 20, 2022 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am

Discover the life of legendary lawman Bass Reeves, one of the first Black men to be named deputy U.S. marshal in Indian Territory in this Living History presentation by actor Ernest Marsh. Explore the traits and characteristics that made Bass a hero to so many. From being born into slavery to apprehending more than 4,000 outlaws and becoming, perhaps, the greatest lawman of the wild West era. Program runs about one hour, including time for questions. Bring a sack lunch to enjoy after the presentation, then embark on self-exploration of Museum galleries. Suitable for third grade through high school students. Admission free for students and chaperones (one per seven students). Ask about a bus travel reimbursement. Preregistration is required by April 15. For registration, call (405) 478-2250. Virtual and in-person options available.
