Friends Celebrate Robert Smith and 15 Years of the African American Legacy Project

Sojourner’s Truth Staff

Fifteen years ago, Robert Smith shared an idea to open a facility, a memorial if you will, to house the history of the African-American community of northwest Ohio. With the help of acquaintances, friends and members of that community, he did just that.

Over the years, Smith has managed to celebrate the contributions of local African-American legends, sports legends and community accomplishments while enlisting the participation of thousands of members of the community in the process.

On Saturday morning, December 14, a number of those friends gathered at the offices of the African American Legacy Project to surprise Smith and congratulate him on the success of the 15-year old venture.

Board members, past Legacy honorees, friends and admirers paid tribute to Smith and he also received a portrait of himself by artists Robert Shorter, who also happens to be one of the Legends honored by the AALP.
