    The women are beautiful and look so content! The family, in their portrait, and Mr. Bell, too.


    Fantastic glimpse. Like Gil Scott-Heron sang it:


    "...and their lights that shine on
    Inspires me to climb on, from
    All of the places we've been."


    One Love, and PEACE

    More than a handful of us have to acknowledge and give props to ALL of our black relations in the Americas...

    Yes, that is what is beautiful. They are content. That is not usually what I witness in those old pictures.

    Look at their statute, how proud they are. Even then they were dressed to the nines. Prolly made their clothing and that of their family and others.

    Look at any number of home photos from the 19th and early 20th centuries, and our forbears reflected the same sort of personal pride, etc., so later for the white haters media hyped propaganda ad naseum...

    The flip side is their beloved media did and do love to hype those shucking and jiving kneegrows for a reason:

    They need and want somebody to be 'superior' too...

    As the world's people got hip to their cons, far fewer of them are buying what they selling...

    Long overdue we don't either...

    FYI...
