Dorothy & Charles Wesley
Giving thanks for the lives of both ancestors to raise consciousness of blacks in the USA.
Pouring libation for both their efforts
Dorothy Porter Wesley was a famed Librarian, Writer, "keeper of the keys to African American knowlege", Africanist, . She devoted her life to the aquisition of documents relating the diverse experiences of the "NEGRO". Her bibilographic knowledge was critical for the success of leading thinkers across the African diaspora.

"...The published works of Charles H. Wesley in 'The Journal of Negro History' covering the period from 1915 to 1969 reflects the fact that his devotion to the study of history covers a wider subject than Negro history. His scholarly output, when considered against his other activities that include being the president of a university, a church minister, a community activist and a campaigner against 20th century racism, portrays him as a true man of the Renaissance and a historian's historiographer...."
