Today, January 15th, is Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday. This iconic photograph was taken at the historic March on Washington at the Lincoln Memorial August 28th, 1963. Time Studios along with the MLK Jr. Estate has created a virtual reality experience that will begin exhibiting at the DuSable Museum on February 27th, 2020. ‘The March’ will bring museum visitors into the crowd and up close with late civil rights leader as he delivers his famous ‘I Have a Dream’ speech.

Margaret Taylor Burroughs played a key role in forging the Chicago Black Renaissance in the 1940s, first by opening the South Side Community Arts Center to serve black writers, artists and activists in Bronzeville and later by starting a museum in her home that would go on to become the DuSable Museum of African American History. http://bit.ly/2FlcM9f #WomensHistoryMonth

just a note concerning BlackHistoryMonth 2020 via; a Black History Maker: when was the last time you read a memoir or a nonfiction history books that'll introduce pride? BOTTOMLINE; We'll have to read them in order to know it and share it with our youth. It’s the only way to enlighten their sense's of ENTITLEMENT. As it does with others ethnic groups, who's taught it at an early age. PS: During slavery days Singing and Dancing and Entertaining the master’s, were means of survivors; for the most part. Like when master say “Boy you better beat your brother’s brains out” we did what master say,,, like it or not. Now day they reward us with MONEY & PRAISE. **************** Many people never wakeup, mostly because they've been taught to believe that they'll get a better life after they're die and gone... While the very one's who telling them is enjoying their's now, ie; the 1%'er and the Richs, but to each their own I say.
Many years ago when I visited there was a display in one of the back rooms about the August 4th celebrations that people used to attend in droves in Moberly, MO. Having been born in Chicago and moving to this small town of Moberly, I was quite surprised to actually see this, as I knew how big those 4th of Aug. (holiday for black people) Emancipation celebrations used to be. Your posters and pics were talking about so many people heading there by train, auto, etc., for the entire weekend. Do you still have that display is my question.

Former BUFFALO-SOLDIERS; of the 24th Infantry Regiment Combat Team, SHARE EXPERIENCES (via MEMOIRS) IN HOPE OF PREVENTING FUTURE-WARS.. Especially UNJUST WARS. Bottomline, Soldiers ( military-forces) Don’t make WAR’S they just fight them; whether they’re JUST or UN-JUST.

So what's new in 2019 that will draw more attendance ?
University of Chicago alumni magazine recently had an article written by White Progressive filled with lies about history of Bronzeville politics and even had a WWII unsuccessful draft dodger posing as one of our heroic Tuskegee Airmen!!! 😱 I hope you will red pill these Leftist Losers on the #RealHistory of the Republican Party of Chicago! They cause my blood pressure to rise upon reading any issue that mentions Black people, they are so filled with commie dezinformatzia about the GOP of Lincoln and Ida Wells! CPS is far worse, but they don’t educate anyone about anything, I expect more from U of Chicago!
