This picturesque book discusses the tragic events and the elements of racism that happened in Charleston and North Charleston, SC during the year 2015. Lornabelle Gethers attempts to give the reader a bird's eye view of this as well as the history of racism of decades and even centuries. It is the author's hope that by continuing to bring more light to this subject, all will work harder to resolve racial issues so that something as tragic as what happened at the Emanuel AME Church, where someone just randomly chose to massacre a group based solely on their race, will never happen again. She also gives a small sample of the joy of South Carolina by sharing poetry dedicated to her heritage.

It is my hope that this poetic art book will recall in you, memories of your own grandmother or great-grandmother as it always does for me. The Gullah-Geechee people themselves are a testament of a people of a victory of overcoming everything that was thrown at them including being betrayed and kidnapped and then sold into slavery and yet still being able to hold onto some of your own self through it all. They are people of pride that have their own culture, their own tongue, their own spirituality, and their own way ...
