Back to Val:
Aaron left more to the entry as to another upcoming event (as of September 3) but we're all still working on confirming that part of message. Aaron didn't leave a lot of details, but we're hoping to sort it all out in time.
Meanwhile, as I posted in a previous comments section, there was interesting news over the weekend:
Black history unearthed
Archeologists in Pike County, Ill., are exposing traces of the first town founded in the United States by an African-American
By James Janega
Chicago Tribune staff reporter
Published September 5, 2004
BARRY, Ill. -- The farm field grew corn and native grass for years, the sun-baked land hiding what remained of the first town a black man had founded in the United States.
More than a century after the 1836 town of New Philadelphia disappeared into the prairie, scholars digging here hope its broken pots, hand-forged nails and buried garbage will fill in details of life on the nation's old northwest frontier.
But historians also say the summer dig in western Illinois has unearthed significant gaps in what is known about black Americans from that time, as differing interpretations have been presented for why blacks and whites lived side-by-side here on the frontier.
Also, check out the new Margaret Cho poster from the American Library Association (ALA) on her blog (see 9/2/2004), at http://margaretcho.net/blog. What people don't know is that they themselves can go ahead and buy the READ posters that you see in libraries directly from ALA. Margaret Cho's poster should be available in a matter of weeks at the ALA Online Store, at http://alastore.ala.org. Margaret is holding the forthcoming book, Almost Home, by Damien Echols of the West Memphis Three.
