Rich, white historians want a definitive statement on the Black Experience. And they won’t just publish it; they’ll stuff it in a time capsule and shoot it into space, so aliens will have full knowledge before they arrive. But the black historian they choose is not only insane, he’s never met another black person.

San Diego in World War II
Come see a multimedia presentation on how San Diego was profoundly changed by World War II. Long before the war, San Diego had become a “Navy town” because of its Naval and Coast Guard facilities. But during the first weeks of war, fears of invasion or air attacks were strong. At the time, the city’s only air defenses were guns on the ships in harbor, but this was soon corrected. Balboa Park was rapidly transformed into a Navy training base and San Diego became hub for military activity in Pacific. The population nearly doubled between 1940 and 1943.
