My new wallpaper, and a quote. "Join me in the hope that this story of our people can help to alleviate the legacies of the fact that preponderantly the histories have been written by the winners" - Alex Haley, Roots. I saw this quote in the front of Drinking Coffee Elsewhere. I'll have more about this when I finish, but it seems to me that Packer's stories help alleviate this fact greatly. They don't shy away from such problems as the reflexive racism of children, the filth that sometimes infests a church that is supposed to be clean, and just the real lives of people in general.
