These are my loving grandparents in the mid-1960s. My grandfather Msgt. Joe Ellis Sr., was serving in the Air Force at the time and my grandmother Nancy had just graduated with her Master's from Southern University-Baton Rouge. This photo was taken in Arkansas, where they were stationed. This photo is at a friend's party. This photo gives me hope and shows that Black love is still available for those who wait patiently. -Daryl Joy Walters
