Harvard University's Queen Dr. Evelyn Brooks Higginbotham = Queen Calafía. Making History HER-story. Reign!

I was overjoyed to meet all at the culmination of dreams of those that presented “Fredrick Douglass, 19th Century Civil Rights Activist: His Legacy Today” event at the U.S. National Archives in Washington D.C. on October 18, 2018.  I was especially moved to astonishment to meet Dr. Evelyn Higginbotham, the first African American woman to head Harvard’s Department of History.  I began my research at the U.S. Archives, LOC, and Harvard University to author my book Who is the Black Queen Calafia of Golden California?: The Real Wonder Woman).  Thus, as a Tuskegee University engineering alumna and TJSL law student, it was truly a full circle moment.  As I am evolving into the “social engineer” Charles Hamilton Houston, Harvard University law graduate and Howard University learned, spoke of.  At the event, it was disclosed that King Douglass was not so much concerned with the effects of American Slavery to his physical body but what it was doing to “his intellect”.  Dr. Evelyn spoke also of how Douglass was a true intellectual and it “struck” her that he loved art and yet was intellectual as much as King DuBois.  Thanks Queen Evelyn.  Recall, Harvard University’s Dr. W.E.B. DuBois was the first African American to receive a Ph.D. from Harvard University from the Department of History who yearned for us to stop the propaganda of history.  Harvard University’s Carter G. Woodson was the second African American to graduate from the Department of History and yearned for Black people to take pride in being Black, initiating Black History Month in America.  Now, a Black woman leads THE History Department.  OMG! History IS alive!

America, let’s prove, once more, that these brilliant Black visionaries’ dreams are not dead, but ALIVE in California as Harvard University’s Rev. Dr. Edward Everett Hale (a White American) desired.  It is time to combine their kingly dreams!  Come up from Slavery, and the Civil Rights Movement to lift the veil of ignorance as Tuskegee University’s founder Booker T. Washington desired, to restore Black people’s intellectual property rights in The Queen of California.  Dr. Evelyn Brooks Higginbotham is Queen Calafía in the flesh! So proud of her accomplishments and what will surely come. Together, Black women and all intelligent Americans shall reign in the royal truth!  Our ancestors are screaming: it is time to love California!
