Wrapping Up the 2014 Black History Month Celebration
Special thanks to everyone who joined me in celebrating Black History Month in 2014! On Saturday, February 15th and 25th, I had the pleasure of participating in discussions of my co-authored book, Through the Lens of Allen E. Cole: A Photographic History of African-Americans in Cleveland, Ohio, at the Southeast Branch of the Cuyahoga County Public Library. Kudos to librarian Sylvia Johnson for organizing these events. If you have not already done so, please try to check-out a copy of this book, and learn more about this amazing photographer.
Three cheers for the amazing women of The National Sorority of Phi Delta Kappa, Inc., including the Rev. Dr. Leatrice Joy Emeruwa, poet extraordinaire! On Saturday, February 22nd, I shared information on my oral history research and my edited book, Homegoings, Crossings, and Passings: Life and Death in the African Diaspora, during a chapter meeting at the Warrensville Heights Branch of the Cuyahoga County Public Library, and I couldn’t have asked for a more appreciative audience.
Remember, the official month-long celebration ends on February 28th this year, but black history and culture are meant to be enjoyed throughout the year!
