Dear Educators and Students,
A recent post on historynewsnetwork.org by Dr. James Brewer Stewart provides insight on the possibly of African American History being at risk. Stewart, a Professor at Macalester College and founder of Historians Against Slavery, discusses the rich African American history that exists in Richmond, Virginia. Richmond is home to various locations where African American history is heard, but not exactly seen.

The morning after the exhibit opening of Kin Killin’ Kin at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center, I drove to Dayton, Ohio to gain a deeper understanding of the images from the artist James Pate. I had no intentions on expressing my thoughts, yet I felt compelled and moved to do so. Being a child of the Hip Hop generation, I discovered several similarities between Pate and O’Shea Jackson, famously known as Ice Cube.
