Book of the Month

An African American woman moved home to take care of her dying mother giving up the opportunity to experience a world beyond segregation. Zoraida Hughes Williams finds that some things have changed about her hometown of Fort Worth, Texas while some have stayed the same, like Hell’s Half Acre, an area where saloons, prostitution and gambling runs wild. Like most of the residents, she wants to keep her head down and stay away from trouble, but it comes in the unlikely form of an Anglo Baptist preacher. He messes up everything and almost gets them killed.

Art up for Auction

My cousin Alice is really my daddy’s first cousin. This older African American woman is truly a delight to me. She is in her 90s, and I’m not giving her exact age cause she may not like that. At her age she is still living her life to the fullest. We have to “catch up” with her.

We are raising money to pay for some repairs to her home. I am auctioning five canvas prints to the highest bidders. You can pick which one you want to bid on and put a number in the comments. OR you can email me at uppcreative@yahoo.com with your bid. The bid starts at $65.

On the last day, October 25, the person with the highest bid gets their chosen artwork. And I hopefully will have enough to buy sheet rock and paint for cousin Alice’s home.

If you have any questions please let me know.
