Intellectual Changemakers: Celebrating Oklahoma's Visionaries

At the Oklahoma Hall of Fame, we believe that our state's history is made by its people. Inspiring Oklahomans have contributed ideas that reshaped our understanding of the world and inspired people to make change. The Intellectual Changemakers: Celebrating Oklahoma's Visionaries exhibit explores the contributions of innovators who made history through advancements in the realms of literature, medical research, history, academia, and social advocacy. This exhibit features portraits of seven intellectual changemakers: Hannah Diggs Atkins, Angie Debo, Ralph Ellison, John Hope Franklin, George Henderson, N. Scott Momaday, and Jordan Tang. In bringing their stories together, we hope to illustrate Oklahoma's rich past of contributing knowledge and ideas to the world.
