THE REST OF HISTORY

HISTORY IS CONSTANTLY EVOLVING. PAST EVENTS WERE RECORDED BASED ON HOW THE PERSON OBERSERVING THE EVENT PERCEIVED IT AND HOW THEY WANTED IT TO BE REMEMBERED. FOR EXAMPLE, WE NOW KNOW THAT CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS COULD NOT HAVE DISCOVERED A COUNTRY THAT WAS ALREADY INHABITED! AS OUR ONCE LIMITED PERSPECTIVE EXPANDS, SO DOES THE LIST OF CONTRIBUTIONS MADE BY PEOPLE OF ALL RACES, GENDERS AND CREEDS. LISA GODLEY GIVES US AN INSIDE LOOK AT HOW SEVERAL ARTISTS HAVE EMBRACED THIS SHIFT. IT’S ALL PART OF “THE REST OF HISTORY” EXHIBIT CURRENTLY ON DISPLAY AT THE MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART IN VIRGINIA BEACH. THE REST OF HISTORY EXHIBIT IS ON DISPLAY AT THE MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART OR MOCA… NOW THRU AUGUST 18TH.

JUNETEENTH CELEBRATION

IT’S BEEN 156 YEARS SINCE PRESIDENT LINCOLN ISSUED THE EMANCIPATION PROCLAMATION, GIVING THE ENSLAVED LIVING IN CONFEDERATE STATES THEIR FREEDOM.

OUR LISA GODLEY WAS ON HAND WHEN SOME SUFFOLK RESIDENTS TOOK TIME THIS WEEK TO REMEMBER THEIR ANCESTORS AND THE STRUGGLES AND SACRIFICES THEY MADE TO MAKE OUR DREAMS POSSIBLE.
