Angie Debo‘s portrait is in the rotunda of the Oklahoma State Capitol (N.E. 23rd and Lincoln Blvd) in Oklahoma City because she pioneered writing about the unfair treatment of Native American tribes in Oklahoma. The most famous published work of Angie Debo is entitled And Still the Waters Run, a nonfiction book.

Self-guided tours of the Capitol are available daily, and 45-minute tours led by trained volunteers are available Monday – Friday. When you visit, you will notice portraits of several other authors listed on the authoradventures.org website.

Students, have you ever seen anyone treated unjustly? Try writing about it in a way that persuades readers to take action.

The Oklahoma State Capitol is the first stop on our Oklahoma Trail!
