Mr. Delbert Richardson is a Community Scholar, Ethnomuseumologist, and Second Generation Storyteller, of the National Awarding Winning American History Traveling Museum: The “Unspoken” Truths.

American Chattel Slavery: About the brutal treatment and psychological impacts on African Americans of the Diaspora
The Jim Crow era: About the racial caste system that focused on the creation and enforcement of legalized segregation
Still We Rise: Focuses on the many contributions in the Americas; Black inventors/inventions
Mr. Richardson’s work is primarily geared towards K-12 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.
