I was looking through the reunion book of my family on my mother‘s side and I saw a picture of one of my great-aunt’s and my great-grandfather inside the store that my great-grandparents owned. It made me smile. I was inspired.
My great-grandparents, African-Americans, “owned” a “store” and raised “six” children in Natchez, MS. (The Deep South)
My mother wanted to start her own business as well.
Thanks to Huntington, who offers “Free Saturdays” every Saturday in collaboration with the Flint Institute of Arts, I was able to visit the Flint Institute of Arts, at no charge. “Free Saturdays” is an open invite to all! You are able to view the entire institute at no charge. A great way to get out and experience culture and do something without spending money. (Normal admission: FIA Members: Free, Adults: $7.00, Children 12 & Under: Free, Students & Senior Citizens: $5.00)

Until Next Time,

The front of the T-Shirt has a classy silhouette of a lady in a what looks like a dress that was worn in the South back in the day! Her arms on her hips and her head tilted downward and to the side, as if she is looking down towards the floor! The back of the shirt has the word “Classy”!
