The Bass Reeves Legacy Initiative is an organization dedicated to preserving and enhancing the story of U.S. Deputy Marshal Bass Reeves.
The group’s first task is a monument honoring Bass Reeves. The sculpture is by noted Oklahoma artist Harold Holden. The project will cost approximately $300,000.
A couple of weeks ago, some members of the Bass Reeves Legacy Initiative traveled to Mr. Holden’s studio and previewed the clay model.
