Well. This was certainly a surprise.
I don’t know whom to thank for either nomination or selection, so I’ll express my gratitude to every one of you for your beautiful support of Black Wide-Awake and, lately, the Lane Street Project.
The Real MVPs, of course, were Mary C. Euell and Samuel H. Vick and Marie Everett and Madison Ben Mincey and my grandmother and yours. I’m just here to shine the light.
