Nyack Sketch Log: NAACP President Dr. Frances Pratt ...
Elegant hats have become the symbol of local civil rights icon Frances Pratt. But when she arrived at the Port Authority Bus Terminal in New York City 62 years ago, she wore a borrowed dress and shoes too tight for walking. On Thursday, April 19, Pratt will officiate the 59th annual Freedom Fund dinner for the Nyack branch of the NAACP at the Pearl River Hilton. From head to toe, France Pratt’s personal story is as bold and compelling as her sartorial style.

Nyack Sketch Log: A New Way to Commemorate Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
...
When Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was killed 50 years ago this April, the assassin was not just trying to silence a man, but a people. A people who believe in freedom, and who will not rest until it’s achieved. A people who are proud of their ancestry, despite being called inferior and indolent by the dominant culture in America and Europe. But ultimately, it will not be the infamous act of a murderer with a fire arm that might silence the voice of the generation who endured and overthrew the tradition of Jim Crow racial discrimination in America. We could be the culprit – if we fail to record the life story of our elders before they depart. More... https://nyacknewsandviews.com/2018/01/commemorating-rev-dr-king/

This week’s sketch is a drawing of a sculpture entitled Non-Violence by Swedish artist Carl Fredrik Reuterswärd that is on display on the grounds of the United Nations in New York. Reuterswärd made this piece afterJohn Lennon was murdered by a gun.

Repost from @nyacknewsandviews Last week while working #EdwardHopper's house in Nyack, I heard creaking noises, footstep-like sounds," says author, photographer and Hopper House trustee Art Gunther. ⠀
"I tolerate ghosts, have seen them in Rockland and at the old North Church in Boston, and have never felt threatened. I usually say something aloud, such as 'Hi, hope you can leave this place and join happy eternity,' figuring a ghost is in this world because he or she still has an earthly connection that must be released"⠀

Nyack Sketch Log: School Street Syllabus -
Upper Nyack’s School Street has enough history to supply its own syllabus. The row houses that line the block were built to accommodate the families of 19th century boat yard workers when Nyack was a regional center for ship building. If the corner store where the street meets North Broadway is strangely familiar, it’s because the address was immortalized by Edward Hopper. The school house that gave the street its name is gone, but the sound of the bell that rang from its tower to summon students to class still lingers in memory...

Repost from @weldrealty Nyack Sketch Log: Celebrate Carson McCullers
... @wrbatson @nyacknewsandviews Carson McCullers came to Nyack in 1945 to convalesce and create. For 22 years she found a place to do both, completing The Member of the Wedding, The Ballad of the Sad Cafe and Clock Without Hands. On September 29, 1967, her heart and vascular system, weakened by a litany of ailments and the strain from the kind of despondency that often afflicts great artists, finally surrendered.

McCullers moved to the village five years after the publication of her acclaimed first novel, The Heart is a Lonely Hunter.

Through the generosity of her physician and friend, the late Dr. Mary Mercer, the literary legend’s legacy in Nyack will endure as her one-time home will soon become a part of Columbus State Universities’ Carson McCullers Center for Writers and Musicians. #carsonmccullers #nyack #ny #history #author #nyacksketchlog #house #sketch #famous #residents
