Portrait from the Goutte d’Or
Konate Veletigui took part in a Cocoon workshop last week. A few days later we ran into each other on the street and I made this iPhone portrait. Later I asked him if he was born in France or elsewhere. “Guinea,” he said. “1940.” What year did you come to Paris? “I’ve been here a long time.”
Up and down Rue Léon.
Nathan Bedford Forrest has lost another one. The decision to change the name of the Jacksonville, Florida, high school that has born his name since 1959 was made late last year. Now that the school year is over, his name is coming down and signs for the new name, Westside High, are going up. http://hrld.us/1iGia0Y
Luckily for the children of Jacksonville, a complete Confederate education is still available, first grade through senior year. Deo Vindice.
