  • This location is shown only to members

Join us! This is a part of the 2014 African history and cultural series. Free admission. Presented by C.R. Gibbs

 

Mr. Gibbs is the author/coauthor of six books and frequent national and  international lecturer on an array of historical topics. He has appeared several times on the History Channel, French and Belgian television, and wrote, researched and narrated "Sketches in Color," a 13-part companion series to the PBS series, "The Civil War," for WHUT-TV, the Howard University television station.

The Smithsonian Institution's Anacostia Museum and Center for African American History and Culture features Gibbs among its scholars at the museum's Online academy website.  In 1989, he founded the African History and Culture Lecture Series whose scholars continue to provide free presentations at libraries, churches, and other locations in the Washington-Baltimore area. In 1997, he led 26 people across Africa.

In 2009, the Congressional Black Caucus Veterans Braintrust honored Gibbs for his more than three decades of articles, exhibits and presentations on the military heritage of Africans and African Americans.
