Quilts Down Under
Quilting is a fun activity that explores the creative ability of an individual. If you wish to give a personalized gift to a loved one that has a part of you and have carefully sewed together to create something exclusive in the truest sense of the word for that individual, then making a quilt is just the thing for you. It is often said that quilting is both a skill and an art. While selection of patterns, designs, colors and fabrics to put together a piece will test the artist in you, following the multi-step process is a skill, like no other. This book explores the different facets of quilting and throws light on each step you will need to undertake in the process.
Growing up in Mississippi in the forties, fifties and sixties, Britton Mosley, Sr. became accustomed to terrorism because of the color of his skin. But, as a native citizen of the United States in the nineteen century, never would he have imagined that terrorism would come from law enforcement and political figures right here in these United States of America. There is a new generation of terrorism in Mississippi that state and local government support-wrongful convictions based on fabricated evidence. While working as a correctional officer at South Mississippi Correctional Institute in Leakesville, Mississippi, Britton Mosley, Sr. saw firsthand the disproportionate incarceration of people of color for petty, non violent offenses. He also was an eyewitness to the mental and physical barbaric brutality against prison inmates. Being an advocate of human rights and inmate rehabilitation, he spoke out against such abuse, and became the target of retaliation from high-ranking prison officials and fellow coworkers in the form of two attempted drug set-ups. In "Fabricating Evidence: Drug Set-up/Cover-up of a Correctional Whistleblower" you will experience the injustice endured by Britton Mosley, Sr., and the emotional toll it took on him. Read the compelling evidence, the fabrication of evidence and the blackballing of an upstanding, law-abiding citizen who only wanted to do his job.
