Salute To Boston’s Diverse Leadership: Portraits Of Purpose
With Co-Authors Don West and Kenneth J. Cooper
Now that Boston has officially become a “Majority-Minority” city, with 53% of its residence non-white, it’s time to showcase the many contributions of its diverse citizens. That’s now been done in a graphically rich new “coffee table” book: Portraits of Purpose: A Tribute To Leadership.
Portraits of Purpose is a visual chronicle of 127 Boston-based African American leaders and their allies who have continued the pursuit of freedom and justice in a post-civil rights era. Renowned Boston photographer Don West and Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Kenneth J. Cooper teamed up to capture the images and shared the stories of these significant individuals of conscience. From Charles Ogletree, Jr. and Cheng Imm Tan to Elma Lewis and the up and coming Tulaine Montgomery, these leaders of action are portrayed for the significant contributions they have made to the region…and the country.

The Harvard University Police Department is investigating an incident in which portraits of black faculty at its law school were defaced.
Michelle Deakin, a law school spokeswoman, said that an investigation was ongoing, but that the school had no comment at this time.
Phoenix and William dig into some Freethought Conversation.
William is fvcking tired.
He doesn't even know wht to put in the show notes right now.
Dian was blessed to meet her Guides at the age of 22, when she was introduced through Trumpet and Materialization séances. During those sessions, she recorded commentary from her Guides that told her she would draw Spirit Portraits one day. Walt Disney was also someone that introduced himself to her, telling her he would help her in her art. Subsequently, upon her return to Fla., a week later, she interviewed, was trained and worked at Disney World in the art of Portraiture.
After 35 years of drawing faces professionally, one day she made up a face, and upon completion, was shocked when a man walked into her booth exclaiming that he needed to have the picture, because as it was his brother that had just died the week before.
One can reach Dian for private sittings, or gatherings at 386-846-5504. She lives in New Smyrna Beach, Fl.

Forging Freedom: Black Women and the Pursuit of Liberty in Antebellum Charleston
For black women in antebellum Charleston, freedom was not a static legal category but a fragile and contingent experience. A deeply researched social history, Forging Freedom reveals the ways in which black women in Charleston acquired, defined, and defended their own vision of freedom.
Drawing on legislative and judicial materials, probate data, tax lists, church records, family papers, and more, Myers creates detailed portraits of individual women while exploring how black female Charlestonians sought to create a fuller freedom by improving their financial, social, and legal standing. Examining both those who were officially manumitted and those who lived as free persons but lacked official documentation, Myers reveals that free black women filed lawsuits and petitions, acquired property (including slaves), entered into contracts, paid taxes, earned wages, attended schools, and formed familial alliances with wealthy and powerful men, black and white--all in an effort to solidify and expand their freedom. Never fully free, black women had to depend on their skills of negotiation in a society dedicated to upholding both slavery and patriarchy. Forging Freedom thus examines the many ways in which Charleston's black women crafted a freedom of their own design instead of accepting the limited existence imagined for them by white Southerners.
Amrita Chakrabarti Myers earned her doctorate in American History from Rutgers University. A historian of the black female experience, she is interested in race, gender, sexuality, rights, freedom, and citizenship and the ways in which these constructs intersect with one another in the lives of black women in the Old South. She is currently Associate Professor of History and Gender Studies at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana.

Rebecca Pikus writes for Coachella Valley Weekly, "Sealed with a kiss is a term used to express endearment from one person to another. “SW” just happens to be the first two letters of Sandy Swett’s last name (the photographer) and “AK” are the last two letters of Peter Mikulak's last name (the artist). “SWAK” was created as a way to identify their creative collaboration, two artists working on one portrait. Peter started playing with words and names and this one “SWAK” stuck a cord between both of them.
Both Sandy and Peter express a level of endearment about their work and it shows in their over the top techniques mastered in the creation of SWAK portraits. Sandy, owner of Red Door Pictures and Pets n Their People Photography. Peter Mikulak a professional working artist for the last six years has a portfolio of accomplishments that some artists never experience." See the complete story by Rebecca Pikus.
