Stop looking at the light. Instead, look at what is being illuminated by the light.

This is an interesting look into the life of a slave cook at Belle Grove plantation.
A couple things to look for.

We've talked about the difference in legacies between white and black generations. That's discussed here.
We've talked about black history and how one has to ferret out details here and there to complete the story. That point is handled very interestingly here.
Even the title comes with explanations that only would make sense while referring to black history.

If you want to see what pretzle logic looks like in a comedy rountine, just go to the comment section.
The squirming from the confederate apologists is hilarious.

I was just informed Mystic, Gary, has succumbed to a long illness. He was a friend, wise and generous.
I loved his contribution here in this forum. They were well written and thought through.
I'm going to miss him.
Hopefully my condolences here will reach his family.

Wow, how awesome!  Imagine Norway honoring a slave and abolutionist!  Her reach was wide!  Good news!
