The Value of History? Priceless
But a little known gem is located right here in Philly. It's the Charles L. Blockson Afro-American Collection, housed at Temple University.
The collection is lauded as the fifth largest assemblage of black historical materials in the nation. But in many ways, it has been taken for granted by Temple.
The Blockson Collection is the subject of my column this week. If you're ever in Philly, make it your business to check it out.
