14. Kicktoons. Darren Bell really captured the essence, and *those eyes* The original postcard ...

….has an inscription on the back from “Aunt Myrtle” who wasn’t in the postcard photo. I see Bell included her in his version. Dear sweet Aunt Myrtle.

Postcard depicting the lynching of Lige Daniels, Center, Texas, USA, August 3, 1920. The back reads, "He killed Earl's grandma. She was Florence's mother. Give this to Bud. From Aunt Myrtle."

My comment: there are images that really cry out to be included in high school history textbooks, and among them are that cherished embroidered sack given by a mother to her 9 year old daughter when the child was sold away. And this postcard. Students, let’s talk about what you see in these silent objects. What do they say to us? To you?
