As I thumb through its pages I am constantly reminded of how much we stood on their shoulders in order to get to where we are now." -- Clarence Page, OU Class of `69, Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist for the Chicago Tribune "Soulful Bobcats makes clear that while OU was making progress against institutional racism in the years after World War II, it still had a long road to travel....

Most of all, they relied on each other." "Soulful Bobcats... is a valuable, highly readable collection of oral histories from African-American students during the postwar years.... (It) should be on every Bobcat's shelf. Indeed, it should be of interest to all who care about the history of African Americans in higher education."
