    Come see and hear Delbert Richardson present “The American History Traveling Museum at Franklin HS this Thursday. The self-proclaimed community scholar and second-generation storyteller says that by calling his museum the American History Traveling Museum instead of the Black History Traveling museum, he acknowledges the contributions of Black people to society as a whole and not only to a separate, some might believe less meaningful, history. The American His-tory Traveling Museum is divided into 4 sections. The first section, “Mother Africa”, highlights the great contributions Af-ricans have made to the world, the second section deals with “Chattel Slavery”, the 3rd section concentrates on “Jim Crow” and the racial cast system that was based on white supremacy over other races, and the 4th section, which Mr. Richardson describes as the most important, is called “Still We Rise.” It consists of a 40-foot display of everyday items that African Americans or people of African descent have invented, patented or improved upon.
