African Americans have lasted through hundred of years of harsh realities of inequality as a result of physical, mental and socioeconomic confinement.  Although the irrelevant plight of African Americans has been analyzed, researched and studied by some of the most brilliant historians, scholars and educators, the effects of this culturally-led conflict exists to this day.  It remains displaced among the rest of society’s trials, tribulations and cruel acts.

The Montague Collection at the Meek-Eaton Southeastern Regional Black Archives (MEBA), would like to present a different perspective of the legacy of the African American and how the reallocation of cargo, a date in time and subsequent oppressive behaviors led to the most comprehensive psychological battle ever fought in history and, to some, the war that continues to this day.
