Just returned from this evening's presentation at the Florida State University Education Center at The Ringling Museum of Art by Vaughnette Goode-Walker from Savannah. The presentation tonight was concentrating on the impact of the Constitution on Slavery, from Independence through the Civil War Amendments. Tomorrow evenings presentation will concentrate on Frederick Douglass' Fourth of July Address and the ramifications of the Emancipation Proclamation and the 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Unfortunately, it has been a long day and evening and I expect it to be so again tomorrow night for the second part of Sister V's presentation. Stay with me folks, and I will hope to be back for sure by Friday afternoon. In the meantime, stay well.
