    Living History Performance - Bass Reeves

    Living History Performance - Bass Reeves

    Details

    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. Sift facts from legend in a special presentation from Bass Reeves historian Art T. Burton immediately following the performance. 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 may be free for students and chaperones (one per seven students). Ask about a bus travel reimbursement. Pre-registration is required by April 15. For registration, call (405) 478-2250.
