Latinos are the fastest-growing segment of the u.s. population. The Tulsa and Oklahoma City school districts are majority/minority, with Hispanic students leading the way. Latinos have made significant improvements in graduation rates in the last decade, but still lag behind white students in several key higher education measures. As shown in the Independent Lens series, "The Graduates," many challenges face Latino students. Joining us today are Richard Storm, Principal at Union Alternative School in Tulsa, which had one of its students featured in "The Graduates"; Mike Figueroa, Principal at Santa Fe South Middle School in Oklahoma City; and Rocio Esperaza, a former student at Santa Fe South Middle School, and now a para-professional at the Santa Fe South Elementary School.

In a recent survey, 36 percent of Americans said they believe in ghosts. So it's no surprise people use vacation time to seek out the dead. Every day in Oklahoma, ghost tours provide tourists the opportunity to brush shoulders with spirits, or at the least, hear a few ghostly tales.
Some tourists stop in for these tours on a whim, and other enthusiasts design entire trips around visiting a string of haunted places. Once a month at Ft. Reno, local paranormal investigators take visitors on a night time tour across the old post in hopes of seeing a spirit. Tulsa’s Cains ballroom is embracing its connection to the ghost of Bob Wills, and Kendall’s in Noble is spicing up the menu with tales of “The Dark Lady” who roams the restaurant at night.
Join OETA’s documentary series Stateline as we search the state’s most haunted attractions and go “Fright-seeing in Oklahoma.”

BLACK AND WHITE: The Sketches of Charles Keller
Charles Keller didn’t give his artistic side free reign until after he retired and one historic Oklahoma town is reaping the benefits. Keller had dabbled in pen and ink drawings earlier in his life, but gave up in defeat after seeing the work of acclaimed Oklahoma pen and ink artist, Greg Burns. He did not draw seriously again for years, but after Keller, who lives in Crescent, retired and started making frequent trips to Guthrie to run errands the itch returned. Old frustrations faded under the gaze of the historic buildings that he saw on every trip to the grocery store and so, Keller began to draw them. He drew unasked. He drew for the sheer joy of it and he gave his drawings to surprised Guthrie building owners. More than 100 detailed works of art later, Keller does not have to give his drawings away. Guthrie now turns to him for its artistic needs. Join Gallery in October as we travel to Guthrie to meet the artist and see the buildings that inspired him to find his own artistic path in Black and White.
