A portrait of my paternal grandmother. In 1949, she was poisoned by a White woman in town because she “sassed” her. I don’t think people realize how White Supremacy has destroyed the lives of close personal family members. Of how it affects us all on a personal, human level, institutional ideas set aside. My father grew up without a mother because of White Supremacy.
This makes me angry…..and folk act like this stuff either never happened or did so….so long ago. Black people have suffered so much and yet continue to shine…..love them all.
