Another amazing lecture

Dr. Fears was a once in a lifetime professor and educator. This work is nothing short of amazing.


This was one of the very best told history lessons I have ever heard! I really wish all teachers were as remarkable as this man! Wow was just wonderful to watch and listen to thanks Oklahoma University and Dr. Rufus RIP.

The Enslaved African

Any discussion on freedom in America is horrendously remiss if the African American experience is omitted; especially so in a so-called post-racial America with an African American serving as president.

No mention of John Brown or Booker T. Washigton or W.E.B. Dubois or Frederick Douglass or Harriet Tubman or Marcus Garvey or Stokely Carmichael and the list goes on. These people affected and shaped American history as we know it in addition to paving Obama's way to the White House. Read up!

I didn't see it in the lecture titles but I'm hoping there's more than just Dr. King's crusade.
