The Museum Of UnCut Funk continues to honor Black Icons by adding commemorative bronze medals featuring their images to our coin collection. We celebrate and honor Addie Mae Collins, Denise McNair, Carole Robertson, and Cynthia Wesley, the 4 Little Girls killed by a racist bombing attack on their Birmingham Church.
While I was paying homage to and celebrating the birthday of the greatest entertainer of all time, the Godfather of Soul James Brown, my facebook friend Jon Daniels asked if I had a set of Black and Brown Trading Stamps in the Museum Of UnCut Funk collection. At that time I didn’t. But I am now happy to report that I do. I just had to get my hands on this!
Women’s History month is a very special time at the Museum Of UnCut Funk. As we celebrate the accomplishments of women in every aspect of American History, we are focusing on women in the arts. To help us make this year’s celebration more note worthy we are honored to have Nancy Goldstein, author of Jackie Ormes: The First African American Woman Cartoonist, as a guest content contributor.
Thank you Nancy.
We continue to build our collection of Black Heritage and Forever Stamps depicting Blacks who have made significant contributions to Amercian History. We recently added the new Emancipation Proclamation stamp that was introduced on January 1, 2013 and the Rosa Parks stamp that was introduced on February 4, 2013. We are now eagerly awaiting the release of two more Black Heritage stamps that will be introduced later this year honoring Althea Gibson and Ray Charles.
Daddy Cool is one of the first graphic novels the Museum Of UnCut Funk archived in it’s collection. Being a fan of Black and White comics I sought out this novel for the collection. I have found very little written about Daddy Cool. I did, however, come across one article written by Kristy Valenti for Comixology. We thank Kristy for allowing the Museum Of UnCut Funk to reprint her article.
The Museum Of UnCut Funk has added the Black Samurai stories by Marc Olden to it’s ever growing collection of 1970’s crime novels.
