Delbert Richardson, Community Scholar, Second Generation Storyteller and Ethno Museumologist at Global Unspoken Truths LLC, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in social justice.
Mr. Richardson became involved in his profession because of race as a social construct. Being an African American born in the 50s was a pivotal year for education because that was the year of Brown v. Board of Education. This was a transitional time for most African Americans in the United States. He was a prime example of being born at the crossroads of American history. Being socially impacted by that and having parents that valued higher education, he sought higher education and that was where the whole transformation of being exposed to information that is not normally available to public school children began. He earned a Bachelor of Arts in global social justice from Antioch University in 2016.
Mr. Richardson’s most notable achievement was using his life story to create an opportunity for other students and children to change the world and also getting his bachelor’s degree. Since 2005, he has been a community scholar, second-generation storyteller, and an ethno-museumologist for Global Unspoken Truths LLC. He is the founder and curator of the American History Traveling Museum: The Unspoken Truths. He wants to re-educate learners of all ages and eventually bring this information into school curricula, institutions, and organizations. He also contributes to the Boys and Girls Club. Mr. Richardson wants to have a brick and mortar building having a digitized virtual reality museum and also have a host of storytellers that he developed to carry on his legacy. He believes that there is a missed opportunity for the students and the children to help educate their parents. There is a lot of ignorance in the world and one of the ways to combat that is through the sharing of information.
As a testament to his success, Mr. Richardson received the Campus Compact Newman Fellowship Award for community involvement and social justice in 2013. He received the National Education Association Human and Civil Rights Award in 2018, Mayor’s Arts and Cultures Award in 2019, and The Courage and Culture Award in 2019. He is also a member of Alpha Phi Alpha. In his spare time, he enjoys golfing and doing research.
