The Deep Deuce District, located just north of Bricktown, was the heart of Oklahoma City's African American neighborhood in the 1920s and '30s, and during that time, the district was known for its incredible jazz music. Music legends Jimmy Rushing and Charlie Christian both called Deep Deuce home, as did Ralph Ellison, the author of Invisible Man.
