    Hi, Lisa,
    congratulation to your new book !! Interesting enough , When I first immigrated to the US, I went to Oklahoma City University for my MBA while working for an oil and gas company there.. Through the The Cowboy Museum in Oklahoma City , I got to see the large original sculpture of the Last Cowboy and it marked the beginning of my learning of black American histories. Looking forward to reading your book.
    again , congratulation !!
