Dear Ms. Lunelle,
As you are aware on the day that we would bury my mother, I would journey to the Foundry in Knoxville, Tennessee to attend the Lee/Jackson Banquet, where I would deliver the Keynote Speech.
And every year since, at the invitation of the Longstreet Zollifer Camp 87, Sons of Confederate Veterans, I have returned to deliver past Commander of the Tennessee Division’s poem, “I Am Their Flag,” and was given a table in the vendor section to sell various inventory, including 2021 calendars, DVDs, etc. that help keep me fighting daily.
After buying supplies to ready myself for the event this year, on Thursday evening past, I would receive a telephone call from Commander Earl of the Camp informing me not to come to the event this year because it would be “scaled back,” and not that many people would attend this year, and probably not be worth my time to attend. I hate it!
Sadly, I had to tap into my very limited war chest to cover the cost of inventory I had intended to bring to Knoxville. Hopefully, somewhere down the line, I will recover. However, as a result, my planned activities in the streets during so-called Black History Month will be scaled down or eliminated. God bless you!
