Poteau March for Justice displays ‘Caucasian awakening’

Check out this story from Michael Duncan about the Poteau March for Justice where Danyell was a speaker.

"Lanier, a Navy veteran who is black and a citizen of the Cherokee Nation, said the Poteau march signals a difference in public attitude toward race and equality in southeastern Oklahoma. But, she said, she is realistic, too.

“I know I’m going to have an uphill battle, being a person of color — an Indigenous Black in rural Oklahoma,” she said. “But it’s time.”

No Black person has ever been elected to a congressional seat in the district."
