About this Event

THE BASIL AND BECKY EDUCATIONAL FOUNDATION makes history and culture exciting and relevant to present and future generations who deserve to know on whose shoulders they stand. We recognize that African American history and culture are part of a larger, interconnected experience in the diaspora. We "fill in the gaps" of history and "relocate" these experiences from the "margins to the main pages" of global human consciousness. Visit our website here.
