African Heritage ~ African American Local History

Use the buttons in the middle bottom to pause (vertical equal sign), to advance, or to reverse direction to next slide. At the far right bottom is a full screen icon for best viewing. This is the extra-long macro version of my talk on why the history of African Americans needs to be written. And how history can be intentionally erased, passively ignored, or actively rewritten. All with the same deleterious effect. And proposes ideas on how to Memorialize, how to speak to history now, and how to ensure it is spoken in the future. The presentation ends with a working document with the Black History Project Committee to identify those stories that the committee feels need to be told. ~ Bill Jeffway
