Editors Note 4/6/17

 If you haven’t yet been to the Springfield and Central Illinois African American History Museum, get there. The new location, a building leased from the city just outside the Monument Avenue entrance to Oak Ridge Cemetery, is ideal. The board and volunteers are energized, continually offering new exhibits and programs. The museum plays a key role in bringing this city together by focusing on the contributions and difficulties of one important community. As Doug King told Illinois Times in this week’s cover story, “What we want people to realize is black history is all our history. And you don’t have to wait until February.” –Fletcher Farrar, editor and publisher
