"Bad News for Outlaws"

Sixth graders in Dejah Park-Stephens' classroom were introduced to the story of lawman Bass Reeves as told by long-time Fort Smith librarian and storyteller Louise Turner. Turner read the award-winning children’s book, “Bad News for Outlaws: The Remarkable Life of Bass Reeves, Deputy U.S. Marshal" by Vaunda Micheaux Nelson. Volunteers throughout the community are visiting local elementary schools throughout African American History Month to read the story of this local hero and to build awareness about the Bass Reeves statue project and Reeves role in the history of the U.S. Marshal Service.
