From my very first post I wanted to pay homage to the speech which inspired the title of my blog, Ain't I a Woman? by Sojourner Truth. Such a beautiful speech, such a beautiful name, such a beautiful woman. It is one of my favorite pieces. I strive to emulate this style in my own work. Poetic and powerful. Honest and unafraid. Memorable. And I like brevity. It too is beautiful. This is the standard I wish to be held to as I explore the question with you ~ ain't I a writer?

Call for Artists

     I vow that on this date next year my children's book about Reverend King will be in some stage of publication. I have been working on it for years and it is ready to go. For the last few years I had been trying to woo a particular local black artist to be the illustrator, but that seems unlikely to happen. I am now looking for another local (preferably Portsmouth, NH) artist of color who might like to work on a children's picture book. The illustrations would include likenesses of Reverend and Mrs. King, but would need to be simple and colorful. Anyone interested please contact me for further details.
