Q&A with Baxter
When you were a kid, what'd you want to be when you grew up?
A ninja turtle 🐢 and a judge.
Who inspires you?
Lisa Nichols: She is an overcomer. She beat all the obstacles that were put in her way by other people, and the obstacles she put in her own way.
What's a trip, moment, or circumstance that changed your life and why?
St. Louis Civil Rights Museum. I learned that white people helped free black people to end slavery and fought during the civil rights movement. Then I started my nonprofit #racismstinks (Racism Stinks).
What's your favorite thing about Tulsa?
I like that even though Tulsa is not a large city we have a large impact and a big history.
