The Claremore Museum of History is currently working on a very exciting project highlighting black leaders and events that helped shape our community. Our Black History Exhibit “Building Heritage, History and Hope” is currently in the design process with plans to unveil June 19th. The exhibit will feature historical photo’s and artifacts that cover Black education in Claremore, from Lincoln School through integration. We have a section on Black military veterans including the first Black cadet, as well as the first Black soldier from Claremore to lose their life in battle. The athletic section covers the Claremore Hall of Fame inductees, the Lincoln Lion state basketball champion team, the semi-pro Claremore Clowns baseball team as well as other noteworthy athletes. The Jones family is highlighted, from W.C. Jones - principal at Lincoln School, his son C.D. Jones - veteran and City of Claremore employee, C.D.’s wife Irene - long time teacher at both Lincoln and Westside Elementary and Rogers County Teacher of the Year, and C Darnell Jones, US Presidential appointed District Judge. We have a section on Religion covering both Mount Zion Baptist Church and Bethel AME church, a section for Claremore’s Black trailblazers including Ronnie Johnson, first OHP Black trooper and a section on Historic Black businesses. In conjunction with the exhibit, we’ve also developed a video montage that is available for viewing and have educational programming in progress so that the MoH can take Claremore’s Black history into our public school system.
