Dawn of the Unread

on August 7, 2015

Powe  Meets Africanus brings together two influential figures in a fight to give voice to Black history. George Africanus was enslaved and gained his freedom eventualy becoming a property owner and entrepreneur. Oswald George Powe was a WWII Radar Operator, activist and author of Don’t Blame The Blacks. When Africanus comes by a poster advertising the Dawn of the Unread series he is saddened by the fact that there are no back historical literary figures and sets out on a quest not only to address this issue but to ensure that there is somewhere for black history to be stored and preserved. 
  With creative input from Larnelle Phillips, Raphael Blake and Casa Castillo
