As of 8am today, my Kickstarter campaign for my book You Will Not Be Forgotten was FULLY FUNDED. 60 people donated $7,500 in 30 days. I am so grateful. This is the best Christmas present I could receive.

These donations say that these people – Lucy, Primus, Cato, Malvina, Berthier, Henry, Ned, Ben, Minerva, Suckey, Betsy, Judy, Elias, Richard, Lavinia, and the rest of the more than 286 people who were enslaved here – were important. These gifts say loudly – THESE PEOPLE MATTER.

Thank you to all of you who supported this project with donations, kind words, and the work of spreading the word. A most special thanks to my dad, Woody, who didn’t want your donations to be lost and, thus, made up the balance of the campaign.

And now, a little happy dance.
