Visiting the National Blacks in Wax Museum

The National Great Blacks In Wax Museum, where Bridgin' A Gap will be facilitated, is among the nations most dynamic cultural and educational institutions. Because it is a wax museum committed solely to the study and preservation of African American history, it is also among the most unique. Primarily, the presentation of life-size, life-like wax figures highlighting historical and contemporary personalities of African ancestry defines its uniqueness.

Alicia Taylor, Miss Maryland United America 2009, and I are pictured with Makeda, the Queen of Sheba. Makeda, a mighty ruler who is written about in both the Qur'an and the Holy Bible, bore King Solomon a son, Menelik. The dynasty deriving from this union lasted up to modern times, and ended in 1975 with the death of the Ethiopian Emperor, Haile Selassie. Just a little something I learned today! :D
