Mr. Delbert Richardson is a Community Scholar, Ethnomuseumologist, and Second-Generation Storyteller, of the National Awarding Winning American History Traveling Museum: The “Unspoken” Truths.  With the use of authentic artifacts, storyboards, and the ancient art of “storytelling”, Mr. Richardson teaches “American History” through an Afrocentric lens. His work is broken into four sections:

  • Mother Africa: which focuses on the many contributions by Africans in the area of science, technology engineering, and mathematics (S.T.E.M.)
  • American Chattel Slavery: the brutal treatment and psychological impacts on African Americans of the Diaspora
  • The Jim Crow era: The racial caste system that focused on the creation and enforcement of legalized segregation
  • Still We Rise: which focuses on the many contributions in the Americas; Black inventors/inventions

Mr. Richardson’s work is primarily geared towards K-12th grade students as well as professional development training for (primarily) white female teachers that make up over 79% of the national teaching force. D.E.I. (diversity/ equity/ inclusion) training is also a part of Mr. Richardson’s portfolio.
