"Carrying the Lighter Child was painted on a closet door from my grandpappy’s house; it reflects the laboring through the different civilizations of history. Some people couldn’t do it themselves, the lighter children who needed help to make it through the different climates. Some people didn’t have the strength." —Lonnie Holley
