Stephen Joe Payne

When author and boinero Stephen Joe Payne was working on organizing a Pawhuska All-School Reunion, those who had read his essays about his childhood in a small Western town in the 1950s and ‘60s encouraged him to take his collection of reminiscences and turn them into a book: Pawhuska Kids' Stuff.
Ex navy man Payne is an activist, championing equal rights and active in the Black Rights Matter movement.

I copy one post here: "I'm sorry. Of course, we were racist when we were younger. We were raised so, if not by parents by society. The movies, advertising, restaurants--all of it, everything made us so. I'm sorry and I try to be better".
