Joyce, I hope to one day see your fine set of paintings in the National Gallery. What a superb record you have made for future generations.

Joyce Owens replied:

Dear Kevin! From your lips...When an artist with your eye says so, it is a thrill for me! Thanks Kevin!!!!

Joyce, Even though I was not a part of it, I feel horrible still about the way my ancestors committed such atrocious acts. The histoy of slavery in our country is so appalling. I admire so much the strength, endurance, faith and tenacity of the slaves and the generations after... I am glad that you are showing the spirit of the generations in such a magnaminous, artistic way.

Joyce Owens replied:

Anne-Elizabeth, thank you so much for your important gesture. History is history, and done; how we may see ourselves is a reflection of that history. So instead of being ashamed of something we could not help, we should accept that reality and build a better today and future. I really appreciate you. (I wish FAIA would date comments!)
