Broken Bow’s Black Communities and Dunbar High School chronicles Broken Bow’s early history and incorporation as a city. Early history, family life, leisure time, the black communities, and their citizens are characterized. Black churches, Dunbar School, successful Dunbar graduates, and athletic programs also are narrated. This book is filled with facts and stories many black citizens of Broken Bow experienced over the years, but may have long since forgotten.

His desire was that the many memories and experiences shared be preserved as a legacy for future generations.
