The public is invited to attend, explore and hear from nationally recognized scholar and storyteller Delbert Richardson as he shares the “‘Unspoken’ Truths American History Traveling Museum” from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 19 at Seattle City Hall.

The museum chronicles the rich history of Africans in Africa prior to American Chattel Slavery, the experiences and impact of American Chattel Slavery, Jim Crow Era, and the many contributions African Americans have had on scientific, cultural, and technological inventions and innovations in the U.S. and the world.

Richardson is an EthnoMuseumologist, Community Scholar, and Second Generation Storyteller who has developed a unique multi-sensory “hands-on” pedagogy that brings attention to the false narratives that dominate American/Global Histories.
