Romelle Adkins
Romelle Adkins Travel and Study Grant

ADKINS, ROMELLE, Minnesota, will travel to Boston, Massachusetts and Charleston, South Carolina to research personal histories, photographic archives, newspaper articles, and historic sites to inform and complete a draft of her novel. This research will inform the psyche of the characters in her novel about social/racial strife, the hiding of one’s identity, the search for one’s self worth and soul, the loss of family, betrayal and comradeship, the repercussions of slavery and the fight for freedom, and the fabric upon which their story is structured.
