"My mother was a share-cropping cottonpicker, and my father was an unskilled laborer and junk collector. Back home, the hatred they had towards colored folk seemed a sharp contradiction to the love they showed me. In 'Recalling Southern Hospitality,' the sentiments of the Southern white are expressed in a bristling manner (by the dogs he keeps) towards a very vulnerable black woman. I know these dogs personally. I have backed away from them many times. And I still feel terror." Exhibition catalog "Cross Pollination"; Woman's Building, 1986. p.5 Brochure on the series can be found in Acquisition File 1991-53
