"Festival Sundiata Black Arts Fest showcases the culture of African Americans in the Pacific Northwest with art displays, exhibits, entertainment and activities for all ages Saturday and Sunday at Seattle Center."
"In venturing to find out who he is, where he came from, and what he's capable of, Richardson curated the Traveling Museum to share what he has learned about American history and its unspoken truths."
"Many of the objects in Richardson’s “Unspoken” Truths American History Traveling Museum are scarring reminders of a sadistic past, such as a runaway slave collar and a branding iron. Just as many are meant to inspire."
