African clothing symbolizes status, creativity, unity, and loyalty to African culture. Those values are captured in every piece of woven fabric that symbolizes black soul, heritage, and power. And it is important to African- Americans, because we naturally crave an understanding of our history and all that brings black […]

In the same location, a small woman was discovered in 1974 — dating back 3.5 million years. Known as Lucy, this young […]
