I made this book to capture how my grandmother, Elizabeth Ann Crockett Hicks, connects to others by using certain phrases and terms of endearment. It is also a how-to for anyone that wishes to speak like my grandmother, by showing phrases she has used for decades. This book relates to the Blood Quantum theme because it is a preservation of my family history. I wanted the pictures I used to reflect how my grandmother would look saying the words on that page. E.A.C.H. is quite humorous for some because these phrases are how you think of her, if you know her. —PURCHASE PRIZE AWARD!
