You may not have known that the Alexandria Black History Museum was established with many different purposes. Firstly, it is built to celebrate the African American experience in America, then to enhance the lives of visitors as well as Alexandria residents and finally to to create understanding and tolerance among different races and cultures. Certainly, the diverse exhibits will inspire the imagination about the lives and experiences of the African American community in Alexandria and Virginia, as well as African Americans in general for any visitor irrespective of their ethnicity.
The museum organizes tours of the museum, arranges lectures and engages in other activities with relevance to the accomplishments and history of African Americans in Alexandria. The museum’s collection includes paintings, books, photographs and other artifacts projecting the experience of African Americans in Alexandra and Virginia from the year 1749 to the present day.
The museum’s building is a valuable artifact in itself, including the earlier Robert Robinson Library which was once the Black public library during the era of segregation. The Robinson Library houses the permanent collection of the museum. In the year 1995 the museum opened the Watson Reading Room situated adjacent to the museum; this too is a historic site as the building was used as a church and early school for the Black community. An array of sculptures produced by famed sculptor and artist Jerome Meadows for the Alexandria African American Heritage Park are also an integral part of the museum’s collection.
The whole collection of the museum is very diverse and encompasses over 3,000 artifacts. Religious objects form an important part of the collection, with items like a century old pump organ utilized at a Baptist church in the region and a church bible of similar age attesting to the religious heritage of the people.
Original documents relating to the lives of African Americans such as those involving segregated schools, military credentials of Black soldiers and documents involving the history of Black organizations are another highlight.
Other notable categories including African objects such as wood carvings, a steadily evolving collection of photographs relating to their experiences and the Moss Kendrix collection, the documents of a groundbreaking Black public relations firm are other major categories of the collection.

Tattoos are a very old form of body art that go back to ancient times when many cultures used them. Some historians say that tattoos go back 5000 years, while others believe they go back well over 10000 years.
The earliest known evidence of tattooing goes back to markings found on the mummified human body that was discovered in the Alp Mountains in 1991. 5300 years old Oetzi – The Tyrolean Iceman, the oldest European mummified human, was tattooed. 58 tattoos, which appeared to serve more than a simple decorative function as some of them represent known pressure or acupuncture points, has been found on his body. The fact that he was tattooed was not a coincidence and it was probably perfectly normal for people of his time to be tattooed.
Ancient Egypt where wall paintings as old as 2000 BC have been suggesting the use of tattoos is today generally accepted as the cradle of tattoo art. Tattoos have been found on a small number of female mummies. The example of this are the mummified remains of a priestess of the goddess Hathor who lived some time between 2160 BC and 1994 BC.
When the Egyptians expanded their empire, the art of tattooing spread to the civilizations of Crete, Greece, Persia, and Arabia. Around 2000 BC it spread to China. The Mayans were also known to have tattoos, as were the Aztecs and Incas. Tattooing became widespread among Polynesian peoples, and among certain tribal groups in the Philippines, Borneo, Africa, North America, and Japan.
The purpose of tattooing varied from culture to culture. The Greeks for example used it for communication among spies. Romans use them to mark criminals and slaves. Tahitian tattoos served as rites of passage, telling the history of the wearer’s life. Tattoos served as symbols of religious and spiritual devotion, decorations for bravery, sexual lures and marks of fertility, pledges of love, amulets and talismans, protection, and so on.
Tattooing was rediscovered by Europeans when they came into contact with Polynesians and American Indians.
About the word – Tattoo
The word – tattoo originates from the Tahitian word ta-tau, meaning – to make a mark. Ta-tau means to mark or puncture the skin and is a reduplicated form of the word – ta – meaning – to strike. Tattauing or tattooing was a word introduced to Europe by Captain James Cook after his 1769 expedition to the South Pacific.
The history of tattoo began thousands of years ago and is as diverse as the people who had them. Today, tattooing is becoming more popular and accepted than it has ever been.

The Fendi nameplace has been around more than 100 years now. Adele Casagande had the brand open under her own name with she opened a store in Rome, Italy with leather and furs, but then she married a man who was also a designer named (Eduardo) “Fendi” and changed the name to run the business with him. It took almost the bulk of 20 years, but eventually the brand became popular all over the world and well known throughout the fashion industry. In the early years, all of the family children were involved in the business, and a second store was opened in 1932 called “Via Piave”.
Fendi was a well known fashion plate for the first half of the century, but it wasn’t until it began to be featured in higher end department and fashion stores such as Bloomingdales New York that it was internationally known. When this happenned, many other European fashion houses began capitalizing on the success in the United States. Everyone recognizes the Fendi nameplate, and now they have a full line of clothes, shoes, belts, sunglasses, and many other things besides designer handbags.
What you Need to Know about Fendi Bags:
– They are very expensive
– Manufactured in limited quantities
– They can be a status symbol of the upper class
– Cost can be hundreds to thousands of dollars
Can you get a discounted Fendi Bag?
Well, that depends on whether or not you’re willing to do a little investigative shopping. If you can manage to come at the end of the season when the new models are coming in, and the old ones are being clearanced out – you might be able to get one as much as 50% off – even in high end department stores.
Then again, some people are fooled into buying fake or counterfeit Fendi bags, and you certainly don’t want to be caught with a knockoff if you intended to have an authentic designer bag on your arm.
How to spot a fake Fendi:
Fakes can be very hard to find, with millions in potential profits at stake knockoff designers take great pains to make sure no detail has been left out. Here are some things to think about before buying…
– Certificate of Authenticity: do you get one? These can be faked too, but you being offered one is better than not.
– Look for Plastic: Even even one part of the bag appears to be plastic (especially the straps), it’s a fake!
– Put your Nose On It: a bag made from “manufactured” or man-made materials will definitely smell just like chemicals or cleaners. What does an authentic designer bag smell like? LEATHER!
– Check out the inside: What does the lining look like? How clean is the stitching? Almost all designer bags have an authentic satin or leather interior.
– Take it to a Fendi Dealer: They’ll perform an authenticity check at no cost and tell you right away if it’s the real deal or not.

The American mastodon (Mammut americanum), seen in the front, is an extinct North American proboscidean that lived from about 3.7 million years ago until about 10,000 BC. It was the last surviving member of the mastodon family. Fossil finds range from present-day Alaska and New England in the north, to Florida, southern California, and as far south as Honduras and El Salvador. Its main habitat was cold spruce woodlands, and it is believed to have browsed in herds.
