 Article Title :: His-story Her-story and a tribute-Black History Month
 
During Black History month everyone will remember the long line of history left to celebrate, and look toward the future of history being written with the Kings and queens, leaders, orators, champions and heralds of a great nation of people. Amongst these great people are those who may or may not get a full appreciation of the effect they have made on history and I want to dedicate this article to a cheerleader for children, poetry and motivation in the person of LaKisha Marie Tanksley.I feel blessed and deeply moved to have met LaKisha in Chicago while working to close the digital divide thru educating people to the uses of technology. The cliché of - this b  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Self-Destruction: My Country, My People
 
A lot of people had issues with what comedian Bill Cosby and what he had to say in reference to some of his sociopolitical views about African-American families and their communities. I commend him for taking a stand and I believe that what he had to say deserves merit.As one of those people of color, I believe that we are taking ourselves back into a different form of bondage without even realizing it, however this time we are doing it to ourselves.Slavery is long gone. Over 400 years of slavery is no excuse for us not to be doing better when it comes to education, reducing crimes, and in other areas of our lives that are conducive to a safer and better world. There is simp  (read full article)

 Article Title :: The Romantic Spirit of the Harlem Renaissance: Jessie Redmon Fauset
 
Jessie Redmon Fauset (1882-1961) also viewed art as a means for political or propagandist ends. In her personal life, as in her art, Fauset strove to depict the middle class values of which she saw as the way to freedom and equality for her race. In one very revealing episode in which her personal inclination conflicted with social propriety, Fauset chose to stay within the boundaries of society set for her. On a trip to Africa, Fauset had visited alone the section of Algiers named the Kasbah. She returned the next day with two companions, only to be warned by a Frenchwoman that the "quarters are too dangerous to visit without an escort" (Wall 34). Notwithstanding the fact that she had b  (read full article)

 Article Title :: The Romantic Spirit of the Harlem Renaissance: Zora Neale Hurston
 
Zora Neale Hurston (1891–1960) grew up in Eatonville, Florida, the "first incorporated black community in America" (Wall 376). Perhaps her isolation from white racism and discrimination during her childhood and her mother’s encouragement to "jump at da sun" contributed to her strong sense of self and her audacity in crossing racial, social, and gendered boundaries (Wall 376). Indeed, in exploring Hurston's life and experiences, it is difficult to believe that Hurston herself discerned any boundaries attempting to be foisted on her. Hurston describes her literary aesthetics as:  (read full article)

 Article Title :: The Romantic Spirit of the Harlem Renaissance: Concluding Thoughts
 
Although in these articles, I focused on just a few elements of the Harlem Renaissance that I learned from my research, there is so much more to be discovered about this intense, vibrant period in American history. As I stated in my introduction, I knew very little about the Harlem Renaissance before beginning this quest, and there is much that I learned that was not included in these articles, e.g. the historical and social context that led to the Harlem Renaissance (increased number of lynchings and race riots, tightening of restrictions placed on blacks, the psychological effects of World War I on African Americans, etc.). Besides the people mentioned in these articles, I learned quite  (read full article)

 Article Title :: The Romantic Idealization of American Indians in Early American Literature
 
One of the major controversies in the acquisition and development of America as an independent nation was the dilemma concerning the people who were already here. As a Christian people, it would have been sinful for our founders to just 'take' the land from other peoples. Therefore, the settlers and the succeeding generations began romanticizing the Indians, depicting them as either noble children of nature in need of civilization and Christianity or as ferocious, demonic savages in need of extermination. Neither view exhibited the reality of the Native Americans. From the earliest American writings, this image of the Indian, either as inherently noble or inherently evil, has persisted in  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Antique Siamese Maps New Discoveries of Old Treasures
 
In 1995, 17 antique Siamese maps were discovered in the Grand Palace. Ironically, the people who found these rare old maps weren't even looking for them. On a search for old court textiles for an exhibition, officials stumbled upon some cotton sheets with elaborate markings in a cupboard in the Princess Abhantri Paja Mansion, royal residence of a daughter of King Rama V.The cotton sheets turned out to be antique Siamese maps. The discovery of these maps started a quest for their origin and purpose that was to last almost 10 years. The officials presented the maps to the Crown Princess who tasked Santanee Phasuk, a geography teacher at Chitralada School to emb  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Tara and Phoenicia
 
Tara:There are many places named Tara in far-flung regions of the world. Near the city of Bruttium in Italy we have one such town or city during the time of Pythagoras and I think this following piece that addresses this spiritual Keltic place is connected with Pythagoras through the likes of his Dean of Studies named Abaris the Druid.The Sun god, Mithras, was the most widely worshipped deity in the Roman Empire in the first century when Christianity was first forming. Mithras was called the Son of God, the light of the world, he was a redeemer and savior and his birthday was celebrated on December twenty-fifth. He eventually died and was buried in a cave and was resurrected  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Madness or Malady: What REALLY Happened to King George?
 
George William Frederick, (4June 1738-29January 1820), or King George III, is said by many to have gone mad, necessitating the Regency. But is this what really happened?Not according to recent research.Actually, the research isn't all that new, which is why it is inexcusable, to my thinking, to continue to characterize the King as merely having gone mad.In 1994 the movie, "The Madness of King George" tried to set the record straight-sort of. If I remember correctly, there was a little blurb at the end stating that the King actually suffered from Porphyria, a disease of the blood. One is inclined to think, however, that most people never read the   (read full article)

 Article Title :: On Connectedness
 
Saturday night brought us our Symphony Orchestra concert with harmonica virtuoso, Robert Bonfiglio. He not only performed a harmonica concerto; he delighted us with five or six encores. (I lost track after the fourth.) Excuse my ignorance; I had no idea harmonica virtuosos even existed…nor did I have any clue that concertos were written for this lovely little instrument. (The harmonica is an instrument?!?) The guy was incredible. I’ve never seen—nor heard—anything like it. Please…check out www.robertbonfiglio.com to become enlightened yourself.I got home around midnight last night, only to wake up and head back to the auditorium this morning to rehearse with one of our lo  (read full article)
