She brought in
a piece of paper
she wanted
enlarged,

slaves picking
cotton on
Confederate bills,

$10 bill issued by
Farmers & Exhange
Bank,

for the color of
cotton picking
money!

images of slavery
in Confederate
and Southern
currency,

these images are
a smoking gun,
direct evidence
slavery was a vital
Southern institution,

for the color
of cotton picking
money!

Jones commissioned
to do a painting of
the Charleston Slave
market,

this is a story I tell
that has never been
told here,

on display at the
African-American
museum and the
Black Holocaust
museum,

the basic theme
of black people
working, and they
are still working hard!

for the color
of cotton picking
money!

Jones painted several
versions of Caravaggio's
16th Century painting of
Christ being removed
from the cross, he gave
it to a Church, they took
it down, said, "we're a
black church, the people
in the painting are white!"

Jones did another copy,
sold it to a collector,
the slave money series
paintings sold for
$1,500 to $8,000,

for the color
of cotton picking
money!

A thrill to read such an informed provocative write by a literary artist whose pen wisely respects the realities of the marketplace while holding steadfast to its chosen mission to excavate and document ignored historical truths.
