Anita Arnold, author of Oklahoma City Music: Deep Deuce and Beyond

Oklahoma City Music: Deep Deuce and Beyond details the birth and growth of music in Oklahoma City’s African American community from the 1920s until the late 1990s. Musical influences of families and individuals, venues, dance, and fashion blend with new-era traditions such as parades, jam sessions, and street parties to create a culture that became well known. This book explores how the seeds of music so deeply planted in the early days continue to produce great musicians and how the influences of those icons will vibrate throughout future international generations.








The price is $23.80 if you pick the book up at the BLAC, Inc. office, 4915 North Lincoln Blvd, Oklahoma City, OK (405)524-3800 and $28.81 for mail orders. Thank you

“Authors of many genres have employed the great leveling effect of a bus ride in a variety of time periods and genres. Morris McCorvey’s 1992 volume Bus Station Poems (Bartlesville, OK: Celestial Press) employs bus imagery in a collection of poems that move from street-level observation to literary allusion, from dark to light, heavy to light….” – Jim Benton in “Riding Naked on Ric Masten’s Bus"

The Pain of Me reviews...

I just wanted to share a few reviews of The Pain of Me with everyone and to say thank you to everyone for the support.

Author on the Rise
The Pain of me is a superb book with the emotional impact of reading good fiction, and never does it become boring. The author Emanuel Jones shows himself to be a capable writer. He is unafraid to tackle subjects of deep emotional impact. The reader will find himself diving into deep waters as he reads this book. The Pain of Me" is a perfect example of Jones' talent for making the character and the issues enveloping him leap to life.-Sheryl Milton
The Pain of Me
Emanuel- 
Great creativity and style! The book was balanced and stayed true to core themes of trust, dreams, pain, hopelessness, and critical life choices. Yet, the main character, Eric, a young bright fella who is full of imagination, finds freedom in his notebook, a therapeutic tool. Great foreshadowing elements keep the reader engaged! -Jay Oney
Emanuel writes of adventures, whether they are his or not, no one know. It certainly details the life of a struggling teen who still maintains his sense of humor, and overall triumph over the messy details of living. A good read.- Samuel Meek
