Review: Great biography of a pioneering civil rights leader and executive with Oklahoma Natural Gas who deserves much of the credit for Oklahoma City's relatively peaceful transition from the Jim Crowe era through the 1964 Civil Rights Act to today. Stewart was a mentee of the granddaddy of the city's civil rights movement - Roscoe Dunjee.
