This was Alabama : Cullman by By Laurens Pierce,1955. Works collected by artist Matthew Bakkom
These places have insides
Insides that share an identity throughout time
Insides where people fall down and pray and
Know that a newer day is on its way
right around the curve….
Those inner rooms where the head drops, the heart melts and
the soul gets pleasure from finding its source.
Yes, in the face of poverty today
Yes in the face of racism today
Yes in the face of the minute men Take-over,
Those souls of grace are on the inside
waiting to come out.
