Les Amis Looks Back

As July 2013 comes to a close, I am awed when I look back over the past four years! It was in July 2009 that I wrote to Richard Gibson to inquire about the location of Beauford's grave. This triggered the chain of events that led to the establishment of Les Amis de Beauford Delaney.

Today I am posting several photos that bear witness to the path that we have opened to honor Beauford's life and work and to make them better known to the world. Click on the links in the captions to access the story behind each image.
