I’ve been a Busy Bee

I updated Dr. Jerome R. Riley’s story after some more research. So please go check him out again!  https://jgraydiscovery.com/dr-jerome-r-riley/

Additionally, I completed 5 biographies  of Black Ambassadors for BlackPast.org:

Two additional  biographies yet to be posted… stay tuned..
Something new to chat about is the Facebook page  developed concerning the erection of a historical marker possibly on Route 83  to speak to the families that once homestead the lands west of Route 83 spread out along the banks of the North Loop River in DeWitty Township, later known as Audacious. This was the largest and longest lasting African-American settlement in rural Nebraska. 
We, Catherine Meehan-Blount, Marcia Thompkins and yours truly decided to support the efforts of Stew Magnuson who is proposing the erection of  marker to the powers that be! So we set the Facebook page “descendants of DeWitty” and invited family and friends to come help us support this worthy cause!
Stew Magnuson is busy these days he has two big forks in the fire: First a   release date for The Last American Highway: A Journey Through Time Down U.S. Route 83: Nebraska Kansas Oklahoma edition. February 9! and second;
he plans to announce on Kansas Statehood Day that his first confirmed booking of his multi-media presentation about The Last American Highway: A Journey Through Time Down U.S. Route 83: Nebraska Kansas Oklahoma edition will be Monday, April 13 at 6 p.m. at the Buffalo Bill Cultural Center in Oakley, Kansas!
