Our Founder and Professor Emeritus George Henderson

In 1967, George Henderson and his family relocated to Norman, Oklahoma, where he became a professor at the University of Oklahoma. Up until that year, Norman was a sundown town that prohibited non-whites to be outside after dark and the Hendersons became the first African-American property owners there. He shares his Brief But Spectacular take on living what he teaches.

Life is too precious to be a spectator sport.  We are no longer merely fans, rooting for the winning team.  We are the team.  We are the grown-ups.  Whatever you believe is true, now is the time to give your respectful, inquisitive, and compassionate self to it.

-Vicki Robin
