There’s no secret that black history as we know it, is a watered-down version of the many contributions that members of the African Diaspora have contributed to creating and developing America. As Michelle Obama said at the 2016 Democratic National Convention, “She lives in a house (white house) that was built by slaves.” Before she said it, how many people actually knew that? In traditional educational institutions, very few trailblazers from the African Diaspora are featured outside of Martin Luther King, Harriet Tubman, Rosa Parks, and Malcolm X. This has created two issues in our society. An entire race who has been denied their history which we see the effects of every day and the idea that keeps racism at its highest levels, that only Caucasian/European based races founded and created every aspect of our society.
The movie, “Hidden Figures” which was released in 2016, is the perfect example. Three women who defined modern advances through mathematical and technological advances at NASA who were never in the history books. In 2020 Katherine Johnson passed away and was honored as a staple in history when just 4 years before, no one knew who she was or her amazing contributions to STEM. These stories are repetitive in U.S. history and now have to be redefined in how “history” is documented for future generations.
We have taken a traditional way of providing education and literary work while using modern technology to make sure that these stories are not only well documented but will exist throughout time and continue to be relatable and available. The reason this series addresses the year 2000 and beyond is because we can’t change our “lost” history. Throughout time, we will still be discovering those “hidden figures” who were never acknowledged for their contributions to society.
However, we can change the trajectory of how our stories are told from here on out in hopes that our future generations will NEVER experience what every generation before them had to endure by not being told or knowing their history and having the ideas that only slavery defines them in the U.S. In 100 years, our stories of today will help shape the ideas of our children and how they value themselves. This is a "historical piece of art" to lay the groundwork for future generations.
If you are 23 years of age and younger, for the first time, your history is documented both physically and vaulted in the digitaverse. The Melanoid Chronicles has arrived to be steadfast on that mission. Our mission is merging traditional media with modern technology. Through Broadcast, Digital, and Print Media, we minimize the gatekeeper's influence over the voice of the underrepresented and disenfranchised, to better strengthen our global community.
