Along 66, September 2018: New Oklahoma 66 Guide and the Black Experience
SEPTEMBER 21-- There is a new Oklahoma Route 66 Guide available. It is put out by the Oklahoma Tourism Bureau. More than 120 Route 66 attractions are highlighted.
And, i thought they already had a very good 66 guide. Every state should have a guide and lots of signage for Route 66.
SEPTEMBER 22-- A new marker in Bloomington, Illinois, tells of Miller Park's role in the era of segregation. The Blacks-Only beaches here were in very bad shape.
Again, the Black Route 66 Experience is an underwritten segment of our road;s history and I am so glad that more is being written about it.
