The Columbus Regional Airport Authority's Diversity Council created a display for Black History Month that is located on the ticketing level at Port Columbus. This display is entitled "Today is Tomorrow's History", and will remain in the terminal from 2/1/08-2/28/08. The exhibition includes photographs and biographical information of contemporary African-Americans who are currently making a positive impact in the Columbus, Ohio community and across the country. Ron Anderson, who is included in this special installation, was contacted by a member of the Council and requested to send information. Ron Anderson has been a Premiere Portfolio Artist at absolutearts.com since 2004.
Ron Anderson and his wife, Robin Anderson, both would like express their appreciation for the invitation that was extended to Ron to be a part of this outstanding program. A number of prominent local members of the Columbus community are featured, including Senator Ray Miller and Mayor Michael Coleman.
The display includes free standing panels. Each panel focuses on divisions of recognition such as, current political figures, national sports, national arts, and local individuals. In addition to these divisions there is a panel dedicated to four African-Americans who have airports named after them in the U.S.
