Negro History Long Way From Restoration WASHINGTON (AP) - The rights and privileges of citizenship that whites have denied the Negro In America may be easier to restore than something else that was taken away—the Negro's history. The Negro may have moved up from the back of the bus but he has barely even entered the books, libraries and museums that record the nation's history. A Negro who recently visited the Smithsonian Institution, that vast national cultural storehouse, said tie found only one item with which he could identify: "It was a mural of EH Whitney and the cotton gin. And you know who was picking that cotton." And a white woman participating in a panel discussion on Negro history and culture in Washington last week confessed she had graduated with honors from an Ivy League college without ever having heard of Frederick Douglass. So, how many have? Yet Dougljfj^' an escafted 1 ' slave who became one of the most articulate and effective leaders of the abolition movement both here and in Europe, is only one of many illustrious SHORT RIBS Negroes whose accomplishments have gone largely unsung. How many school children, for Instance, are taught that when Admiral Peary battled his way to the North Pole a Negro friend and associate, Matthew Henson, was with him and may have actually set foot on the pole first? Or that at Bunker Hill, among those not shooting until he saw the whites of their eyes was Peter Salem, a Negro, who when he did shoot brought down the British commander? Or that a Haitian-born Negro, Jean DuSable, was one of the first to establish a trading post where Chicago now stands? Or that the machine that revolutionized the shoemaklng industry was invented by a Negro. Efforts are being made to restore the Negro to his rightful role in American history, but they face many obstacles. "Just as there Is tremendous opposition to open housing," said another participant in last week's conference on Negro history, "so is there tremendous opposition to open hi story," But b.as—and all history is distorted to the extent the writer* decides^fj^at to put in and what to leave but—is only "part of'the problem in telling the Negro's story.

In Detroit, the international Afro-American Institution has a traveling display It takes to the schools* Much of the material in the Detroit collection has been gathered from neighborhood attics. The Negro, searching for his past, is in a position to help his- torlans find it.
