Born in a scholarly family, Mr. Li started learning Chinese traditional calligraphy from his grandfather when he was six years old. Over the course of 50 years, he poured his heart into Chinese traditional calligraphy and never stopped perfecting his skills. He is the one and only Chinese calligrapher who can use formal script, cursive script, official script, Jinming script, Dazuan script, Xiaozuan script, running script and Weibei script to write Chinese character. Among them, official script and running script are his specialties. Mr. Li pioneered Pu’er calligraphy and it’s famous for its vintage appeal, long lasting aroma and perfect combination of calligraphy and tea ceremony.

Rediscovery of the African Burial Ground alerted the City and the world to New York’s early history and the African people who worked and lived here. This burial ground is the final resting ground for ancestors from many African descended cultures.

The African Burial Ground National Monument is located on the first floor of the Ted Weiss Federal Building located at 290 Broadway in Lower Manhattan. A Visitor Center and exhibition space includes exhibits about the history of the cemetery, the African contribution to the building of early New York City as well as the more recent events surrounding the site's discovery and construction.

The incident is long gone and over with. … [Continue reading...]
