African-American history has played an integral role in the shaping of politics, economics, and culture in the United States. Growing up, how did you learn about the accomplishments and struggles of African Americans? Were you in a classroom? Reading a book? Talking with relatives or friends? How has your understanding or knowledge of African-American history changed and/or developed over time? What do you think is the most effective way to pass along this rich and growing history to future generations?

I have researched an ancestor about whom a documentary has been produced by some retired IU professors. I was also able to have a marker placed at historic Vincennes’ Courthouse. “Mary Bateman Clark: a woman of color and courage, ” has aired throughout Indiana 2013.
My hope is to publish a historical fiction book. I have a manuscript.
