I am not going to lie researching has been a pain. I been researching Rachel Flowers for the past six months or so and it is a headache–a good, yet frustrating headache.It is hard searching for a person who was born between 1901 to 1903. It is even harder when the person is black. I know I have done a lot and I have found more than what I would ever hope to find, but I want to find a family member, someone who can tell me firsthand about Rachel Flowers. I do not want to create her story based on federal documents. It does not tell me how she felt, how she lived, or her personality. It is an injustice to her. I guess I can only hope right?
Yes, it is a headache, but like I said before a good one. Rachel’s story needs to be discovered and I will be the one who will do that.
