Event description
Educator tour of 1619: Resistance/Resilience/Remembrance/Liberation, an exhibit by award-winning storyteller Delbert Richardson

About this event

In 1619: Resistance/Resilience/Remembrance/Liberation, national award-winning storyteller Mr. Delbert Richardson invites community to experience a chronological journey through Mother Africa, American Chattel Slavery, Jim Crow Era, and Still We Rise: African American inventors and inventions.

The history of American chattel slavery, as an institution, had the primary function of feeding the greed of wealth and capitalism by white men of European decent both in Europe and the Americas. The commodification of human beings primarily from the continent of Africa provided a free labor force for over 400 years. There are many histories that are still debated and told through different lenses, but stories that are centered on the attributes, perseverance, and courage, of a great people are rarely shared.

1619: Resistance/Resilience/Remembrance/Liberation depicts themes to highlight the assets of African people in Africa and African people of the Diaspora. The primary focus of Mr. Richardson’s exhibition is to create a healthy space for difficult and healing conversations.

Educators are invited to this special exhibition exploration session to tour the exhibit and think critically together about ways to share this exhibit and its themes with students.

Mr. Delbert Richardson is the Founder and Curator of the American History Traveling Museum: The Unspoken Truths. The Museum chronicles the rich history of Africans in Africa prior to American Chattel Slavery, the experiences and impact of American Chattel Slavery and of the Jim Crow Era, while also detailing the many contributions African Americans have had on scientific, cultural, and technological inventions/innovations in the U.S., and the world.

The Museum’s mission is to re-educate learners of all ages, in a manner that leads to self- restoration and community healing, with the eventual goal of implementing its teachings into school curricula, institutions, and organizations committed to cultural competence and social justice.

More information can be found here: The Unspoken Truths .
