Dr. Carter G. Woodson

MEROE Museum honors Dr. Carter G Woodson (1875 – 1950) started the American version of this concept in the early 20th century – 1924, officially adopted in 1976.

Like W.E.B. Dubois, Woodson believed that young African Americans were not being taught of enough of about their heritage and the achievements of their ancestors the builders of the first civilization.

To get his message out Carver first turned to his fraternity, Omega Psi Phi, which created Negro (Black American /African American) Literature Week in 1924. He chose February because it was the month in which Frederick Douglas was Born. His legacy reached into the 20th and 21s century as he was the first to try to create an Encyclopedia Africana, a 6 volume set focused on the history and culture of Africans in the diaspora.

Additionally we are partnering with over ten Second Life Black Greek organizations to create an exhibit which reflects their history and mission. The Black Greek Community in Second Life is vast.  Our goal is to share their information to illustrate that organizations in SL not only make a difference but mirror the activities and missions of many existing Black Greek Orgs in the real world.

The exhibit illustrates our progression from during slavery and auction blocks to the rise of our beloved towns and institutions to the burning of Tusla.

New Exhibit: Pan Africanism, FBA, ADOS and Identity

The exhibit helps viewers to understand the differences and beauty of each local cultural identify and how it relates to the overall global identity and socio-economic identity of Pan Africanism.

This exhibit is focused on countering the current divisive tactics used by many to divide and separate us into more fractions.

New Exhibit: COLORISM –
Dividing the People

MEROE Museum collabos with local Second Life Artist, DJ Skully to create a thought provoking art exhibit that enables the viewer to ask themselves if colorism affect their reality and treatment of others.

Colorism an issue that is like a plague to the universal Black community and culture. Colorism can cause self hatred as well as hatred of others , simply based off of Hue.

We must accept and realize that all Black people come in a variety of hues from the lightest to the darkest. It is the lack of understanding this that separates us. 

We developed this exhibit to try to get people to reflect on colorism, and hopefully show them a different view of life. Some times when we see people some only see the hue of the skin, (which does not always indicate the amount of melanin someone has either). This exhibit is a thought experiment meant to cause the viewer to rethink and challenge their programming.

BookS – Included in this exhibit is The ISIs papers by dr. frances cress welsing

New Exhibit:
Black Culture: Future History

MEROE Museum collabos with Second Life Artist, Giselle Chauveau to re-envision the current “history” of our culture and people. 

Many of our concepts of history and culture are locked into specific areas of the earth such as North East Africa, and Western Afri-Asia (now known as the Middle East). However every day we learn more n more how an ancient Black civilization travelled the earth setting up colonies, etc. As of late, we are beginning to accept that history may not be a progression from simple man to current. In fact, new evidence suggests a highly advanced civilization existed before the earth’s global catastrophe, and the survivors of this advanced civilization provided the foundation for our current world.

We wanted to know what if the story was more than that. This exhibit focuses on envisioning what our timeline could be? in addition, each single piece of art represents a unique frame or era within the overall timeline. We hope all enjoy.
