SEATTLE, June 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Delbert Richardson, a third-year student at Antioch University Seattle (AUS), was named to the prestigious Newman Civic Fellows class for 2013. The Newman Civic Fellows Award honors inspiring college student leaders across the country who have demonstrated their investment in finding solutions to the challenges that face our communities.

Richardson is being recognized for his deep commitment to telling the African American story. He has developed a traveling museum of storyboards and artifacts, entitled "American History Museum: The Unspoken Truths," to educate people about slavery and the Jim Crow era.  Richardson also hopes the traveling museum will strengthen self-esteem among African American young people with stories of African American heroes.

Influenced by his experience on the AUS Civil Rights Tour, Richardson is interested in working on a new segment of his museum – telling stories from the civil rights movement, especially stories that are not well-known.
