The craft of telling visual stories differs from other disciplines in that it is forever married to the advancement of technology. If a writer possesses the necessary talent and vision, it makes little difference whether he uses Microsoft Word or a Quill pen and powdered ink. Visual storytelling is different. As technology advances, new horizons are opened up. New tools give us new ways of better constructing the narrative we hope to convey. This being the case, we are always on the lookout, keeping a watchful eye on the digital technology market.

Dr. McNair and importance of understanding African American Children’s Literature

If you have not met Dr. Jonda McNair from Clemson University, you are missing an opportunity to truly learn about African America Children’s Literature. This past Thursday evening, we were invited to hear Dr. McNair read a few children’s books written by well known African American Children’s Literature authors, an experience that was so much more than being exposed to great books. We were among twenty families from the community invited to the Anderson County Library, one of only two white families in attendance. From the moment we sat down, and Dr. McNair began sharing her experience and the books she was going to read, we knew we were thankful for the invitation. Rose was able to pick ten books we would have never thought of choosing; books with a different way of telling a story…many stories new for Sarah and I to read. I have to admit, Sarah and I encouraged Rose to choose a few books for our own exploration and enjoyment. I just know that as we raise Rose, we are intentionally teaching her to “break bread” with people beyond her own "skin." #Canon #5dmarkiii #Rosebud

The power of community and the heart of a mother with a determined spirit. #AIM #WACS

Today was an unbelievable day…I have met many women in my life that have inspired me; and Ashley Hall moves to the top of the list. I think of my mother who sacrificed so much when she was going to Clemson getting her Nursing BSN while Jennifer and I were in high school and junior high. There is something about a determined mother that will do anything to make life better for herself and her children. Ashley Hall has beat the odds! With the help of AIM and the WACS program, Ashley raised her two children, went back to school starting at Tri-County Tech and then Clemson where she graduated in 2015 and now works at Clemson in student affairs as a creative writer. She did this while almost homeless, loosing dependable transportation, her children in the hospital, and so many other barriers. She did it…and during our interview today, I crossed over from a brand journalist to one that cried right alongside her as she shared her path. AIM’s WACS program is amazing and it is empowering women just like Ashely Hall, right here in Anderson, SC to make a better life for themselves and their families. #Canon #5dmarkiii
