Just a Few Lines via Gail Roughton from The Color of Seven

The Dark Series: The Color of Seven

He walked up to a little backwoods Alabama black Church. Seven

Cedars Baptist. It stood right outside Seven Cedars, Alabama. He laughed. “Be you de sebbenth son of a sebbenth son,

boy?” Well, maybe he was, maybe he wasn’t. Sounded good, though. He went

inside to join the ongoing service. Within a month, he’d collected a group of

ten or so of the black community’s finest young men. He met with them down by the

banks of Seven Cedar Creek.

“My name be Cain,” he announced. “An’ my color be sebben.”
