FILE - In this Thursday, March 2, 2017, file photo, President Donald Trump gives a thumbs-up after speaking to Navy and shipyard personnel aboard the nuclear aircraft carrier Gerald R. Ford at Newport News Shipbuilding in Newport News, Va. The ship, which is still under construction, is due to be delivered to the Navy later in the year. The area around the Virginia shipyard where Trump visited is just the kind of place that would likely feel the greatest economic impact from his requested $54 billion increase in defense spending. But outside of that kind of local impact near the shipyards or jet factories receiving additional money, experts say the increased defense spending wouldn't make much difference overall.

These are the stories that reveal black America’s roots

African American history is a living history—one that spans hundreds of years from the first black conquistador, Juan Garrido (“Handsome John”), to Barack Obama and beyond. But these stories haven’t always been shared or taught, which is why the role of historians and storytellers in advancing our understanding of the African diaspora has been so important.
