A Choice of Nonviolence

"Nonviolence means avoiding not only external physical violence but also internal violence of spirit. You not only refuse to shoot a [hu]man, but you refuse to hate him [or her]." Martin Luther King, Jr.

Wall Chosen for Mural Site

Mural organizers are pleased to announce the selection of Village Florist in Cassopolis, Michigan as the site for the Kentucky Raid mural. Becky Maier, owner of the longstanding business, has expressed enthusiastic support of the project.

The designated wall, jointly owned by Maier and Attorney Stephen Woods, faces north, symbolically appropriate for art depicting the difficult, yet hopeful journey of African American freedom-seekers.

The watercolor painting to the right is one of several "studies" that mural artist Ruth Andrews has offered to the mural organizing committee for input.
