Karen Collins – AARP Magazine

Today’s featured Black Woman is alive and active in California. She was a school teacher, but when her teenage son was incarcerator, she went into a depression and to rise up she choose to help other black children understand the strengths of their ancestors. She started creating intricate dioramas of Black History. Over the course of 24 years, Karen Collins has created a view of Black History in shadowboxes from the beginning of the dark journey in 1619 through the generations. Her project is a mobile tour to schools, libraries, churches and community centers.
