About 

Tri-City Collective sensed a need for a media program that would engage issues of importance to African-Americans and all BIPOC communities. Issues that shed a positive light on our community instead of the negative aspects so often heard in the news. A show that could explore issues that are unique to Oklahoma's BIPOC citizens that are often ignored and a show that provides in-depth investigations of BIPOC life statewide-which is by no means monolithic.

 

So, Tri-City Collective, in partnership with KOSU, the Tulsa Artist Fellowship, and Oklahoma State University-Tulsa, created Focus: Black Oklahoma, an hour-long news and public affairs program on various topics relevant to the BIPOC communities statewide. Our show broadcasts monthly on KOSU and KWGS; both National Public Radio affiliates.

Focus: Black Oklahoma features spotlight interviews supported by stories on current topics and events in our BIPOC communities. These topics include news, politics, current affairs, education, law, arts, family, health, relationships, sports, finances, business, spirituality, technology, and more.

 

Focus: Black Oklahoma serves as a catalyst for change and understanding by strengthening Oklahoma's ability to create awareness for a more diverse and inclusive population.
