Without dignity there is no liberty, without justice there is no dignity, and without independence there are no free [wo]men. — Patrice Lumumba
Alan and Cup
Also known by the nickname Blackie. She extends a welcoming paw to sapiens always. Blackie is a bit older now, but when very young she existed among fellow homeless creatures (sapiens as well) in the former Newport projects near the Ohio River. Her bodice was home to the ten-thousand fleas. Halloween was rapidly approaching: a dangerous time for a black cat. Always a dangerous time for her fellow sapiens.
Lisa extended her a home here and anchored Blackie’s story through words and sketches. Perfect perfect strangers are yet offered Cup’s gentle paw.
