“The Patriot Victory at Kings Mountain” painting by Richard Luce, 2012
“The patriot militiamen remounted their attack, each man advancing under his own command, each fighting with courage and skill and commitment, and in time taking the crest of Little Kings Mountain.” - from the audio file: “The Story - The Battle of Kings Mountain”
So I’ve started carrying around this pocket journal with me the past few months and it was such a good idea! Everyone can take photos of beautiful places and people but to be able to add a quick little sketch allows you to capture the emotion in the moment too!
Read Edwidge Danticat’s moving meditation on Jacob Lawrence’s Migration Series, currently on view at MoMA, in The New Yorker.
“At the end of a week when nine men and women were brutally assassinated by a racist young man in Charleston, South Carolina, and the possibility of two hundred thousand Haitians and Dominicans of Haitian descent being expelled from the Dominican Republic suddenly became very real, I longed to be in the presence of Lawrence’s migrants and survivors. I was yearning for their witness and fellowship, to borrow language from some of the churches that ended up being lifelines for the Great Migration’s new arrivals. But what kept me glued to these dark silhouettes is how beautifully and heartbreakingly Lawrence captured black bodies in motion, in transit, in danger, and in pain.”
