Ruth Brown unveiling by Gene Winn on youtube

Unveiling of Ruth Brown bust. Former Bartlesville, Oklahoma, USA librarian for 31 years who was fired "for being a communist" because she supported the civil rights movement. Quote from fomer Bartian: "It was ok to have blacks in the town, and it was ok to be nice to them, but do not bring them home, or become friends with them." The railroad tracks still divide the PARTS of the town.
