A Tribute to Cecilia Armena King

                                                                   

                                                                      Died: November 19, 2013

This post is dedicated to a legend in her own, Cecilia Armena King.  Not only was she an amazing poet, painter, producer but she was a very interesting and deep person.  All it took, for her personality to blossom was the hour I spend with her on my talk show.   
 

            

Cecilia Armena King is the great, great granddaughter of daguerreotypist, Augustus Washington, who took the famous portrait of John Brown the abolitionist (1800-1859), taken circa 1846-47. She is the granddaughter of former President of Liberia, Charles D. B. King in West Africa, and the daughter of Cecil D.B. King and Armena Cooper Hines. Also, the granddaughter of James F Cooper, a renowned and accomplished merchant in Liberia. He was also the grandson of Augustus F Washington.

Cecelia became “Miss Liberia” in 1972 Pageant” and went on to England, where she competed with Linda Carter (also know as Wonder Woman) in “1972 Miss World Pageant”.   Cecilia Armena King is a gifted artist, a gifted writer, poet actress, and painter. Her hand drawing tapestry like pen and ink designs has come to be known as hypnotic artwork. There is always more to be seen. The more you look at it the more you see. They are surrealistic. Her work has travel around the world and has been published in a book titled “Women of the World” a global collection of art; narrated by Claudia Demonte, forwarded by Arlene Raven, published by Pomegranate Communications, Inc. Now one of her pieces called "Cerita" named after her daughter is permanently being housed at the International Museum of Women in San Francisco as part of the original works from the book of “Women of the World”.

                                                      You Appeared
                                                       By Cecilia Armena King
                                                      
                                                       You appeared in front of my eyes
                                                       And danced through my mind
                                                        Then you penetrated my heart
                                                       And seeped down into my soul
                                                          Now you’re a part of me!
