Susheel's long-awaited research archive will be inaugurated at the African-American Museum & Library at Oakland (AAMLO). It is already housed for viewing there (659 14th Street, Civic Center). This copyrighted work, in the making for 17 months at a cost of $45,000, is "the tip of the iceberg of my collection," said Bibbs, but "will help resolve some key issues surrounding Pleasant." The three-DVD set, funded by the National Park Service, AAMLO, and private donations, presents the dramatic chautauqua, interviews with preeminent scholars on Pleasant's importance and context, documents, & information on key issues that have distorted Pleasant's image for over 100 years. Come to Meet Mary Pleasant in this important way!
