Largest Preservation Fund in American History Invests $3M to Save Black Landmarks

The African American Cultural Heritage Action Fund announced its support for projects that will help preserve African American landmarks. Recently, interest has grown in celebrating and commemorating Black history. For example, Juneteenth is increasingly being recognized by state governments as a national holiday across the country, which marks the 1865 anniversary of enslaved people being informed that slavery had ended. Although progress has been made in raising awareness of Black history, many narratives have been whitewashed and reworked, thus narrowing the experiences of Black people.

Door County in Miniature: Adult LEGO fans showcase Door County creations

There’s something endlessly satisfying about LEGO, from the tactile sensation of placing brick after brick, to the sound each piece makes as it snaps into place. Children as young as 18 months can start exercising their hand-eye coordination with DUPLO sets before graduating to LEGO proper at age four. From there, youngsters explore their imagination, of course, but they also learn art and design principles such as color theory and architectural design. Sets teach children about physics through axles and gears, and older children and teens can experiment with computer programming through LEGO Mindstorms.

Landmarks Orchestra to strike up summer on the Esplanade

When Boston Landmarks Orchestra music director Christopher Wilkins remembers summer 2020, his first thought is the sadness: the loss of livelihood for the orchestra’s musicians, the disconnection from its audience, the cloud of greater tragedy hanging over it all. Then he remembers the scramble to film concerts and get them online, with string players masked and winds cocooned in plexiglass cages. He remembers the struggle to replicate Landmarks’ hometown roots for the unmoored, hyper-saturated landscape of virtual concerts.

Summertime In Savannah – A Travel Guide

Savannah is such a beautiful historic city. I spent time here as a kid as my mom grew up in Savannah, but it wasn’t until I went back as an adult that I saw its true beauty. Savannah is the oldest city in Georgia which serves as an important industrial city due to its Atlantic seaport. The historic district still has cobblestone streets and beautiful architecture featuring new and old buildings. Savannah also has over twenty-two “squares” throughout the city adorned with historical statues, park benches, and majestic trees with Spanish moss dancing in the wind. You may recognize one of the squares, Chippewa Square, which was featured in Forrest Gump. The bench is no longer there, but it’s still cool to check out the area where they shot the film. Whether you’re headed to Savannah on a girl’s trip or family vacation there are so many fun things to do. I already can’t wait to go back!
