Harriet Showman lives in South Carolina, U.S., a culture hurt deep by the wounds of slavery and racism. Showman began her quest to understand the legacy bequeathed to her by slave-owning ancestors through her undergraduate and graduate study of colonial South Carolina history.

The Counselor by Cormac McCarthy
“I have no wish to paint the world in colors more somber than those it wears, but as the world gives way to darkness it becomes more and more difficult to dismiss the understanding that the world is in fact oneself. It is a thing which you have created, no more, no less. And when you cease to be so will the world. There will be other worlds. Of course. But they are the worlds of other men and your understanding of them was never more than an illusion anyway. Your world-- the only one that matters-- will be gone. And it will never come again”
Cormac McCarthy
