The two-part, four-hour film documents the history of the Dust Bowl and its causes, but primarily centers on Oklahoma and the state’s dust bowl survivors.
The screening and panel discussion are part of a statewide community engagement effort brought about to go over the issues explored in “The Dust Bowl” and promote dialogue about how Oklahomans are using, supporting and promoting sustainability in their families and communities.
