Jack White and his band playing a baseball game in Turley with Kiowa opening ceremonies was a zen-like spiritual end to last weekend.
In between announcements and ceremonies a DJ with a red Pendelton blanket draped over his table played 90’s hip-hop for the crowd.
There was something so nostalgic about being at a low-key sandlot baseball game, while at the same time mystical and deep to see the Grand Entrance happening there that I almost forgot what brought me out to the park in the first place.

Casey McLerran is the Literary Editor at the Black Wall Street Times. She is a Sooner State transplant from Forest Hills, NY. McLerran arrived in Oklahoma at the age of three shortly after gentrification displaced her and her family out of their home in New York. At first glance, many think they have McLerran figured out. To be frank, she’s a biracial American young woman that unapologetically embraces her half-African identity — a feminist-womanist she is. Her pen operates as her voice as well as her sword. Her accolades include the 2018 Rural Oklahoma Poetry Museum’s Oklahoma Poem Award, a business management degree, and her three beautiful children. Her objective with the Black Wall Street Times is to elevate and amplify the literary art of modern black American culture, pay tribute to African-American literary trailblazers, all while simultaneously linking and introducing children to the world of colorful American writers.
