Till Death Do Us Part.


You and I are eternally connected because you came out of an idea. This idea might seem a little stereotypical especially in the way that I have illustrated Julius to be almost as a minstrel character. The Goophered Grapevines is not only a story of cruelty during slavery in the South but also an incorporation of the beliefs of the African Americans. Because of my white looks I can cross the color line and see the bigotry and prejudice alive everywhere. I wanted to present the contrasting beliefs in the tales by juxtaposing  John from the North and Julius from the South. My dearest Lucia you are a spirit that can be linked to folktales to the fireplaces in Africa and we are bound till death do us part.
