The Art of  Migration
My parents were both born in Chattanooga, Tennessee in 1938 and 1936 respectively.  My father, James is African-American, and my mother, Patricia is Irish-American.  He was a tall, slim, brown skin handsome man who had a generous heart and a bright smile.  She was petit with a fair complexion, light brown hair, hazel eyes and my dad said that she never met a person who couldn’t be her friend.  They met in the late 1950’s at the local Five & Dime ...

The Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County has a large genealogy collection.  I rate it in my top ten favorite genealogy libraries.  The main library is located in downtown Cincinnati, Ohio at 800 Vine Street. The Genealogy and Local History Department is located on the third floor of the main library.  The department was formed after the library underwent a major reorganization plan in 2007.

The Genealogy and Local History Department has an extensive collection of materials, including a virtual library, the entire U.S. census records from 1790-1930, military history collection, newspapers, periodicals, biographical materials, local history, and maps.  The department also has a valuable collection of materials focused on African American ancestry.  This collection includes materials on slavery, reconstruction, civil rights, military participation, and migration. The staff was helpful and resourceful and I am already planning my next trip back in 2015.

This is what happens when you put artists from different cultures into a big white room and enter an A-list hip-hop artist to perform. Not only perform, but connect with each one of them, breaking the boundaries and exploring a whole new territory that most artists are uncomfortable to explore. “The Artist Is Present”, Jay-Z…

This photo is of a mural in the Library of Congress in the Jefferson Building.  The photo portrays Arab oral traditions in storytelling and was painted by John White Alexander.  (1896)
