The “Introduction” video for this series will be submitted to public cable access on the St. Paul Neighborhood Network (SPNN) on Monday, October 30, 2013. We’ll let you know when it will air there. Soon after, the video will also be available on Youtube, and we’ll post the link here. The text for the “Introduction” chapter will appear here soon also. Stay tuned!
P.S. The header image here shows my grandmother Mabel Crawford MacDonald, my mother Peace Mabel MacDonald Watkins, and me, Bonnie Peace Watkins.
