About The Presenter
Mr. C.R. Gibbs, a Howard University graduate and DC Humanities Council scholar, is the author/co-author of six books and a frequent national and international lecturer on an array of historical topics. After military service, he began giving public lectures on Black History in 1972. He has appeared several times on the History Channel, French and Belgian television, and he wrote, researched, and narrated "Sketches In Color," a 13-part companion series to the acclaimed PBS series, "The Civil War" for WHUT-TV, the Howard University television station. The Smithsonian Institution’s Anacostia Museum features Mr. Gibbs among its scholars at the museum’s Online Academy website.
In 1989, he founded the African History & Culture Lecture Series whose scholars continue to provide free presentations at libraries, churches, and other locations in the Washington-Baltimore area. In 1997, he led 26 people across the African continent. He won the 2008 Award for Excellence in Historic Preservation in Public Education, given annually by the Mayor of the District of Columbia. The Congressional Black Caucus Veterans Braintrust honored Mr. Gibbs in 2009 for his more than three decades of articles, exhibits, and presentations on the military heritage of African and African Americans. In 2011, he provided historical commentary for WUSA-TV, Channel 9's coverage of the dedication of the King Memorial. In February 2013, he also appeared in the PBS documentary, "Meet Me At Equality" on the 1963 March on Washington. That same year, Mr. Gibbs also spoke at the annual
observance of International Emancipation Day in Toronto, Canada. In 2014, Mr. Gibbs was a featured speaker at the National Civil War Project, a joint
event sponsored by Arena Stage & George Washington University. In 2015, Mr. Gibbs was chosen as one of the 50 most influential people in the city by the Washington Informer newspaper. In June 2018, he lectured at the National Museum of African American History and Culture.
