The faces and names of seventeen African-American soldiers who served under Captain William A. Prickitt are recorded in a rare surviving miniature photo album that was treasured by the Union Army officer, passed down through generations of his family, and is now part of the Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History and Culture. A mix of free and enslaved blacks ranging in age from fifteen to fifty, the soldiers have been enlarged to life size in colored pencil drawings by Michigan artist Shayne Davidson, who meticulously researched the lives of the men.

Maryland-based Washington Samulnori presents exciting folk rhythms of Korea with four percussive instruments: the changgo (hourglass-shaped drum), the buk (barrel drum), the jing (large gong), and the kkwaenggwari (small gong). The Korean words "sa" and "mul" mean "four things" and "nori" means "to play." The samulnori repertoire can be traced to farmers´ band music ("nong-ak") and ceremonial music. The repertoire of samulnori also integrates the influences of folk and religious music and their intricate rhythms have become quite uniquely their own.
