According to our partner, the Frontier, the University of Tulsa's Board of Regents will vote Wednesday on a recommendation to remove the name of law school founder John Rogers from the building.

According to a university review, Rogers was one of five men who incorporated the Tulsa Benevolent Association six months after the 1921 Race Riot.

Historians say the Association was essentially a front for the Ku Klux Klan.
