A Visit from the Old Mistress (Oil on Canvas by Winslow Homer)
Part of the Black Religion/Womanist Thought/Social Justice book series
Why has she come from over yonder? She calls up our miseries on her plantation, ploughing her fields, picking her cotton, nursing her children, our own neglected for their ease. She ain’t sorry for her ways, just sorry we done quit slaving.
