Publicly Acknowledged, Secretly Celebrated Statue of Theodore Roosevelt

American history apparently began on the steps of the museum of Natural History, central park west. The first thing you see upon entering the steps of the museum, is this bronze equestrian statue. Is it [the Theodore Roosevelt statue is the beginning of the museum's presentation] the beginnings of the American story, as it is the entrance to the edifice of our history? Clearly the artistic sculpture of President Theodore Roosevelt that is situated in front of the museum of Natural History uncovers the possibility... Read More

National Hispanic Heritage Month Celebrated at MOLAA

A bit of background information. Each year Americans observe National Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 to October 15, by celebrating the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America. The Day of September 15 is significant because it is the anniversary of Independence for Latin American countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. In addition, Mexico and Chile celebrate their Independence days on September... Read More

The sound of our footsteps is muffled by patchwork drifts of snow on a gravel track winding past the bottom of carpark stairs. Surrounding hills are covered in local rhododendron; the air icy, the trees tall, rough barked and bare.

Our guide strides ahead – rugged-up for the 10min walk – black puffer coat full length, fur trim sleeves and hood. She stops, adjusts her mittens and points her umbrella. There’s a gap in the trees, and the house appears on cue among flurries of snowflakes that float to rest on a leaf-littered forest floor.

Brenda is a local, and long-time disciple... Read More

Just off Broadway I’m in a side street by City Hall, the ubiquitous New York crowds somehow missing, the hum of traffic vague and distant.

A lonesome monument sits silent and tucked in the shadow of City Planning offices and a 30-storey Federal skyscraper; that building’s construction leading to the 1991 discovery of the largest North American cemetery of Africans and those of African descent. This is a small corner of a much larger 17th and 18th Century ‘Negros Buriel Ground’, originally 2.6Ha and the resting place of 15,000 men, women and children.

With New York’s voracious... Read More
