NC-17 GRAPHIC- Hidden History-The Lynching Of Laura Nelson And Her Son LD In 1911***messymandella***

We discuss racism and our sole mission to unify the races.

However, to become familiar with our ancestors, it is mandatory to know why women with a strong voice, were not appreciated then, and are a constant thorn in an average man’s mind-frame.

We will  retrieve a piece of our history that society did not deem of importance and would never have a rally to clear her name of wrong doing. Of course when Laura was murdered those  pictures and whispered historians  that haunted the families and the neighbors were the proof. However the families that ended her life,  remain unmoved about the legend of Laura Nelson, that most remain hidden. Laura’s life was an uncomfortable truth, but history should never be ignored.

After shaking and crying watching  12 Years A Slave, and witnessing  Lupita Nyong’o ,with her interpretation of the molested and domestically tortured slave, “Patsy”  I  researched other female slaves. Our society must learn  the value of all women.

 

Now, we pay  homage to the woman who became  “Strange Fruit.” 

 

Here is the truth about a woman who ended up on  a lynching postcard, and lost her life unjustly just for being a  well spoken woman, with a sense of pride.

SUMMATION OF EVENTS

Austin, Laura and their son L.D. Nelson were taken into custody after L.D. Nelson allegedly shot and killed George H. Loney, Okemah’s deputy sheriff, when Loney and a posse turned up at the Nelson’s home to investigate the theft of a cow belonging to a Mr. Claude Littrell. Laura’s husband pleaded guilty to the theft and was sent to the state prison at McAlester in the town of the same name for three years. Some accounts say in an effort to save her son, Laura said she had fired the fatal shot. Both she and L.D. were arrested and placed in jail at Okemah before their position their was compromised at the Old Schoolton Bridge by lynching.

 

 

Jetta – Feels Like Coming Home (Live)***messsymandella***

 

Under the moon, you go to sleep with them in your heart.

I believe soldiers at war fight harder knowing that they have so much love waiting at home. Even if they can’t touch it or kiss that loved one, they will work harder and stronger to protect that little lady that loves them more than they could ever imagine.

Something feels so familiar that you can’t explain, and their friends will even try to intercept or talk them out of that feeling. You know that you woke up happier than them. You woke up loved, and you know that person means more to you than you can explain.

No one will understand how you feel, or why? You and that person, just know! It feels like home! Your friends and associates will not understand that someone can touch you so much in your spirit and mean more to you than you ever dreamed was even possible. You feel amazed, but blessed that you experienced this in your life.

Don’t be naïve, it does not take a day! Sometimes it can take months or years, but you know “home.”

If anyone around you could even imagine that feeling, they wouldn’t have to front, or pretend to be happy without love.

Once you have that complete love of understanding of who that person is, and what they do, that is love. No matter what happens in this life, nothing can ever be written more beautiful than what your heart is feeling now!

You found your home!
