MAPS 4 will save the Freedom Center and build the Clara Luper Civil Rights Center to transform Oklahoma City’s knowledge of our civil rights history, and to positively influence the future of northeast OKC and our entire community.
The historic Freedom Center, home of the local civil rights movement, will be renovated. The new Clara Luper center will serve as a civil rights museum for Oklahoma City. It will be a community gathering place named for our most famous civil rights pioneer. The capital allocation is $16 million, to be supplemented by a $9 million operating fund to guarantee the long-term sustainability of the project.
