It is still a constant battle to preserve the history and dignity of African-Americans. George Keaton and Remembering Black Dallas, INC. are doing their best to help us remember and respect.
This morning I had the honor and pleasure of participating in an event unveiling the Texas State Historical Marker and the public art Sankofa: Anderson Bonner Memorial by Andrew Scott honoring the unprecedented contributions Anderson Bonner brought to Dallas. Hosted by Remembering Black Dallas, Inc. in collaboration with The Honorable Jaynie Schultz, Dallas City Council Member District 11, the Dallas Park and Recreation Board and Department, and the Office of Arts & Culture, this dedication is a testimony to Anderson Bonner’s many achievements during his lifetime and the impact of his success on Dallas’ history and growth in District 2.

Anderson Bonner was born enslaved in Alabama and eventually became a prominent Texas landowner and businessman. It’s unknown when Bonner was freed; however, he may have been “refugeed” in Texas during the Civil War. At 35, Bonner purchased 60 acres of land on August 10, 1874, signing the deed with an “X”, as he never learned to read or write. He built a business by leasing his land and the houses on it to cotton growing sharecroppers. With the money he earned, he bought more land and eventually amassed over 2,000 acres in what is now North Dallas and Richardson. Medical City Hospital now sits on what was once the Bonner farm and the North Central Expressway divides Bonner’s original property. Anderson Bonner passed away in 1920 at the age of 82. The city of Dallas officially named the park west of Medical City Hospital, Anderson Bonner Park in 1976. The park consists of 44.1 acres of Bonner’s original land.

Forgetful City 10/21/2022

Forgetful City

Black graves were simply paved over, headstones used as rubble to help fill ditches and low spots,” a Dallas Observer columnist wrote in 1999.

TUCKED DIRECTLY TO THE WEST OF THE CENTRAL EXPRESSWAY ARE THE GRAVES OF SOME 7,000 FORMER SLAVES AND FREEDMEN. THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE EXPRESSWAY PAVED OVER ROUGHLY A FOURTH OF THE ORIGINAL 4-ACRE CEMETERY.
IVAN ARMANDO FLORES/TEXAS OBSERVER
The new road opened in 1949. Within a decade, traffic congestion had returned. In 1987, after the state highway agency announced its intention to expand the 10-mile stretch of highway, an archaeologist working for the department did a survey in the neighborhood and noticed a sign for “Freedman’s Memorial Park.” The project was stopped and archaeologists started digging.

One body was found. Then 30. Then 1,157.

https://www.texasobserver.org/forgetful-city/

Forgetful City Dallas’ first freeway was built over a Freedmen’s cemetery, a cultural clear-cutting in a city built on convenience.

Today we remember Benjamin Banneker, who died in 1806. Born free in Maryland in 1731 and the son of a formerly enslaved Black man and biracial mother, Banneker taught himself mathematics, science, and literature from borrowed books.

Banneker conducted a land survey establishing the boundaries of what would become the District of Columbia during a time when free African Americans faced harsh social restrictions and limited economic opportunities. He became the first African American to publish a scientific work and used his knowledge to write almanacs—annual books that have information about weather, tides, and planting. In his almanacs, Banneker shared his abolitionist views. He published for 6 consecutive years between 1792 and 1797.

Banneker, whose statue and 1793 almanac are showcased within our museum’s Slavery and Freedom exhibition, also challenged existing assumptions about the inferior intelligence of African Americans. He boldly wrote to Thomas Jefferson, then the secretary of state, pointing out a chilling contradiction: the same person who declared that all men were created equal, enslaved Americans himself. Banneker asked Jefferson to correct his "narrow prejudices" against African Americans. Jefferson answered by complimenting Banneker on his intellect.

Thank you, The Texas Freedom Colonies Project!!

Freedom colony supporters and descendants in the Dallas area meet editors, George Keaton Jr. and Judith Garrett Segura, of Our Stories: Black Families in Early Dallas this Saturday, October 1st at 3 PM at Interabang Books, 5600 W. Lovers Lane #142, Dallas, Texas 75209

"Our Stories: Black Families in Early Dallas enlarges upon two publications by the late Dr. Mamie McKnight’s organization, Black Dallas Remembered—First African American Families of Dallas (1987) and African American Families and Settlements of Dallas (1990). Our Stories is the history of Black citizens of Dallas going about their lives in freedom, as described by the late Eva Partee McMillan: “The ex-slaves purchased land, built homes, raised their children, erected their educational and religious facilities, educated their children, and profited from their labor.”

Our Stories brings together memoirs from many of Dallas’s earliest Black families, as handed down over the generations to their twentieth-century descendants. The period covered begins in the 1850s and goes through the 1930s. Included are detailed descriptions of more than thirty early Dallas communities formed by free African Americans, along with the histories of fifty-seven early Black families, and brief biographies of many of the early leaders of these Black communities.

The stories reveal hardships endured and struggles overcome, but the storytellers focus on the triumphs over adversity and the successes achieved against the odds. The histories include the founding of churches, schools, newspapers, hospitals, grocery stores, businesses, and other institutions established to nourish and enrich the lives of the earliest Black families in Dallas."

D23 CONSTITUENT OPPORTUNITY: This week, the Texas State Library and Archives Commission will be hosting a virtual seminar on African American genealogy and genealogical resources. As many of you know, it can be difficult, as African Americans, to trace our roots sometimes because of slavery.

The Texas State Library and Archives is providing this opportunity to help YOU understand the various methods you can use to FIND YOUR ROOTS.

The direct registration link for this Friday’s Zoom is: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_yTIfwCycR8WLLxzjdPdfzA

Our Texas State Library and Archives is a massive storehouse of records on the state of Texas, including many records where you may be able to find YOUR relatives if they lived in Texas around the time of Reconstruction. For example, did you know you might find an ancestor in the roster of State Police, as some African Americans served in the state police during Reconstruction? You may also find your relative's name in a record of an election contest from the 1870s, where the brother of a Reconstruction legislator testified on the names and residences of many African American freedmen who had voted in particular areas.

We as African Americans sometimes have to get creative to find resources to unearth our ancestors, and one purpose of our Texas State Library and Archives is to help people down that path.

Please tune in for this important webinar!

This is an interesting story I found!!!

So back in the day Black people had to sit in the back of the bus and if there were not enough seats available then had to wait for next bus or not go. State Board exams for Cosmetologist were always held in Austin, Texas. Well the students at Franklin Beauty were prepared to take their state board exam to become a licensed Cosmetologist in the State of Texas. Since they didn't allow but 1 or 2 black students to purchase tickets for the bus to Austin, Texas my grandfather charted his own bus & took them all. The cool thing is they all passed the exam 34 students.
