“Now ain’t the time to be sentimental, sistuh. The dead is dead, and the livin’ is livin’. Some of de livin’ is just holdin’ on, but dey still among us. We need to do all we can to keep it dat way. We gotta do dis work. You gotta take me to his grave.”
Delilah Ashford to Priscilla Ashford. Time Conjurer. Michael Arthur Kennedy. 2022.
