Kevin McGruder, author of "From Philip Payton: The Father of Black Harlem," (Columbia University Press, 2021) talks about Payton and his impact on Harlem and the world, and Harlem today. McGruder is also Vice President of Academic Affairs and Associate Professor of History at Antioch College.

Background Information: In the spring of 1904, the Hudson Realty Company, a firm led by White investors that had recently purchased occupied walkup apartment buildings in the Harlem Black enclave at 135th Street and Lenox Avenue, served the occupants with eviction notices. Philip A. Payton, Jr. and other Black investors quickly joined forces to purchase and lease other properties from White owner/allies in the area to block the effort to displace African Americans from the area.

Through the ASA Restoration Project that he started in 2008 to honor the legacy of the late Dr. Asa Hilliard, Tony Browder has raised funds for the excavation and restoration of two 25th dynasty tombs that Dr. Elena Pischikova discovered in Luxor, Egypt in 2006. (Hilliard was a professor of educational psychology who focused on indigenous ancient Egyptian history.)

Both Pischikova and Browder disagree with traditional Egyptologists that claim that the 25th dynasty was the "only" time that Black kings ruled Egypt. Nevertheless, Browder adds, “Our mission is to eventually excavate all three tombs, catalogue our findings, and clean, conserve and restore the tombs to their original condition.”

The work is hard he explained in 2011, "we work in 100 to120 degree temperatures and in pits 20 feet below the surface."  On the next Port Of Harlem Talk Radio, he talks more about the Project and it’s success.

Browder is working on a new book that will explore the architecture and exhibits within the NMAAHC, “An African Ark: The Architectonics of the National Museum of African American History and Culture.” It is due in July 2017.

Thu, April 29, 8:30p

Poet, author, and Frederick Douglass historian Nathan Richardson spends a great deal of time researching the life and times for Douglass (1818-1895). As a Douglass historian, we talk with Richardson about his thoughts on the recently passed Georgia and Kentucky voting laws and their place in history. We also contrast those laws with proposed laws in The Gambia, and back in The States, we look at Marjorie Green-Taylor’s America First Caucus from a historical lens, too.
