OKLAHOMA CITY - Wednesday marks the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.,and there is a massive effort to change the way we talk about race relations in Oklahoma.
For more than a year, KFOR has been organizing a project called “United Voice.”
Media organizations that usually compete against each other are coming together for a common mission.
Every single television station in Oklahoma City, radio stations and the newspaper are joining together to bring about a new level of dignity and civility when it comes to talking about race.
Earlier this week, we spoke with a lieutenant with the Oklahoma City Police Department. He told us about a time when he asked his friends and family to grade Oklahoma City on how it deals with race relations.
"What I found is that for my white friends and associates, it was A and B. And for my family and friends that were black, it was D and F, in the same city. And so we were living in the same place, feeling two different things," said Lt. Wayland Cubit, with the Oklahoma City Police Department.
