 When Darryl Wellington wrote about the history and future of blacks in Santa Fe last month, he raised quite a few eyebrows. SFR got plenty of letters to the editor both in support of and critical of the piece.

Now, the New Mexico Mercury online publication has posted a Q and A with Wellington.

Wellington moved to Santa Fe four and a half years ago. He told Mercury that the experience of researching the history of African Americans here was worthwhile.

"I really do believe that the process of exhuming and disseminating history can permanently alter perception," he says. "A person with limited knowledge of how cultures came to reside in a place the stories of the many who preceded her/him, or the parallels between her/his presence and historical  trajectories  -- has one perspective; that perspective can be totally transformed by historical knowledge."
