Lessons of the past not I

By Brett Dawson

Senior Staff [Vi-irer

There’s pride in Derrick Little—
john's voice when he speaks of Black
History Month. He’s quick to list
reasons for its existence, to stress its
importance as a teaching tool.

But he’s just as quick to point out
the downside.

“'I'here are people who will try to
lump that history into one month,"
says Littlciohn, a civil engineering
sophomore, “and then think they don’t
have to be concemed with it the rest of
the r if they teach it in February.”

iii: a month is hardly enou h to
scra e the surface of significant
blac Americans. From Martin
Luther King,_]r., to Toni Morrison,
even the best-known names from
black history are more than enough
to fill a month of high school or col-
lege curriculum.

That’s to say nothing of equally
significant, if lesser-known figures,
including Carter G. Woodson.

'l'he observance of Black History
Month owes a great deal to the
black historian VVoodson, who pro—
posed Negro History Week. First
recognized in 1926, the week was
intended to honor the accomplish-

But the history 0 bla in Lexing—
ton oes back to its foundin in 1775 .

Slaves were among the rst inhab-
itants of this area as they crossed the
Appalachians. Since that time, blacks
have had a rominent role in the his-
tory and cu ture of Lexington.

“Lexington has a very rich and
diverse history in terms of the expe—
riences of African-Americans,” said
Gerald Smith, director of UK's
African American Studies Program.
“But because Lexin on has a rela-
tively small African- erican popu-
lation, people sometimes assume
there isn‘t much history.”

Perhaps the most infamous site in

former president

Abraham Lincoln
and author and for-
mer slave Frederick
Douglass both were
born in February
—— the observance
was expanded to
Black History Month.

A month still is hardly enough to
cover hundreds of years of history.
But given the choice, Chester
(Grundy wouldn't think of giving up
Black History Month.

“\Ve always have to give credit to
the power of correct information
and education," says Grundy, direc-
tor of African-American Student
Affairs. “There‘s clearly a need for
corrective history. For several hun-
dred years now, the history of
African people has been erased from
traditional history books."

And that revision of history not

ts (irillc, located on the east end of
downtown near the current Fayette
County Courthouse. This area was
the home to many slave auctions,
because Lexington was a commercial
and travel center of early Kentucky.

Smith thinks the location of
Cheapside was a key reason for its
becoming a massive slave market.

“Cheapside was, no question, one
of the most important slave market
areas in Kentucky,” he said. “Most
slave markets were located in the
heart of cities, and Chea ide is right
near downtown." Smit also cited
numerous slave iails located near
Cheapside as proofof its importance as
a slave-trading center in the state.

A slave burial ound is located on
Seventh Street getwcen Shropshire
and Chestnut streets. Of the ceme—

own culture, but
also hinders the
ability of other
cultures to com—
municate with
each other.

“I think the
greatest benefit
(ofBlack History
Month) is that it
teaches not only
the African—
American culture
but all cultures
about the contributions of African—
Americans,” says Stefanie “'atson, a
Spanish senior. “But 1 don't think that
makes anyone think they shouldn‘t
teach that history all year."

At least that was Watson’s experi—
ence at Cleveland Heights High
School, where she says her teachers
made every effort to make history

Littleiohn took Al'rican—s‘uiierr

Louisville, but that course wasn‘t

of that. he’s seen black history over-

that's a problem."

And it’s not lust ,i problem for
black students. \\'hitr students
indeed. students of all ethnic back-
grounds —» can benefit equally from
studying black history. Littleiohn says.

“I'm not saying you can't have
black friends without knowing black
history," he says. hBut it’s helpful if
you're dealing with me to see where
what l'm thinking comes from. It can
help you understand my perspective."

And that understanding is .i key

full of tragedy, tradition

the 19th Century. Many were able to
establish succesle businesses in black
neighborhoods, located just north of
what is now downtown.

The central business district for
black business owners was Deweese
Street. located north of Main and just
to the west of Rose Street. Furniture
stores. banks and other businesses run
by blacks were all located there.

On weekends and at night, blacks
would visit the many taverns and
nightclubs along this street. Later,
the black-owned Lyric Theatre
opened, which would go on to host
numerous events in the black com-
muni . The Lexington Colored Fair
Association, the largest black fair in
Kentucky for man years, was held
on land just off of Georgetown Road.

Because education was “separate
but equal," many black schools were
established in black communities. The
Chandler Nonnal School, between
Newtown Pike and Georgetown Road,

was the first black high school in Lex‘
ingyon. Paul Laurence Dunbar lligb
Sc ool, Smith said, was a real symbol
of pride in the black community.

“It was one of, if not the best, black
high schools in Kentucky." he said.
Smith cited the excellent quality of
teachers, successful athletic programs,
and its rapid accreditation as reasons
why the black community was proud
of the school, in addition to the
school‘s role as a cultural center.

“From a cultural standpoint, it was
in the center of the African-American
community.“ he said. The old Dun—
bar school closed its doors in 1967,
and is now a community center. Lex-
ington's newest high school. renamed
Paul Dunbar, was built in 1990 on
Man 0‘ War Boulevard.

By Dan O Neill

1n the film industry law dictates that extrav—
agance makes money and subtlety rarely gets
made. Fortunately this decree that governs the
world of commercial filmmaking doesn't have
complete sovereignty over the independent

the linger to this rule of thumb, but the thutiib
usually prevails. This form of art-house insur-
rection does. however, occasionally produce a

Perhaps this yeIr s most successful uprising
comes from Hollywood screen legend Robert

writer director and chief financer of his per-
sonal project about a fire—and~brimstone Peti—
tecostal preacher in the South.

His much-documented character study
he ran 13 years ago after he visited a small
Arkansas church.

He tells the story of Sonny, a demonstrative
Pentecostal preacher from 'I‘exas and truly
original cinematic creation. Somewhat of a
local legend (at least in his mind), we first catch
glimpse of Sonny sneaking onto a car accident
sight to "save" the victim's soul.

Here the film takes a rare position for a reli—
gious piece in that it doesn t take I position It

Sonny s aLtion as a presumptuous act of arro—
game or a minor triumph of faith. This moral
