The Deep Deuce district of Oklahoma City is small but carries tremendous historical significance as a center for jazz music and African-American culture. Located north of Bricktown, in the 1920s and ‘30s Deep Deuce was the epicenter for Oklahoma City's African American community and was well known for its incredible jazz music. Music legends Jimmy Rushing and Charlie Christian both called Deep Deuce home, as did Ralph Ellison, the author of Invisible Man.
