Oklahoma Human Rights Commission Honors 11 With Human Rights Award

Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Eleven Oklahomans, including a doctor who operates a free weekend health clinic in downtown Oklahoma City, are recipients of the 2006 Oklahoma Human Rights Award.

The awards were presented Thursday in the chamber of the Oklahoma House of Representatives by members of the Oklahoma Human Rights Commission.

Among the recipients was Doctor Marcus Boyd Shook, who established a free medical clinic in Oklahoma City in 1995.

Another recipient was John Hope Franklin, a former Tulsa resident and Duke University historian whose research produced previously unknown details of the 1921 Tulsa Race Riot.
