Pain and Process
By Don Dixon

This art book is a collection of works that are a reflection of what I see in this world, it is the mirror I hold up to the world as a Black man living in America. I hope this book inspires conversations and many interpretations. I truly believe that art can change the world, can open eyes, and can open the door to something new and greater then we ever could have imagined.

Haiku Bouillabaisse
By Elaine Parker Adams

A bouillabaisse is a mouth-watering stew of seafood, tomatoes, onions, garlic and spices. Elaine Parker Adams creates a bouillabaisse of haiku poetry, contrasting youth and old age, good times and bad, garden and yard, and tackling two American crises—September 11 and Hurricane Katrina. Many of the poems reflect her experiences growing up in New Orleans. Other poems address contemporary issues, such as cultural diversity and social justice. Her poems on nature emphasize birds, from wise owls to human night hawks. There are moments for chuckles, tears, and sighs. Like a good bouillabaisse, each morsel must be savored.
