Jupiter’s Corner by Anita Ballard-Jones

Jupiter's Corner

Ninety eight year old, Mrs. Anna Mae Lang decided to reveal to her great great granddaughter the details of what happened to the Negro community of Jupiter’s Corner, in Savannah, Georgia and how it related to the tragic death of her husband, Hugh. With this revelation she made the decision that would change the lives of her immediate family forever.

A compelling short story about Hugh Lang and his discovery of the small community of Jupiter’s Corner. He referred to it as a ‘safe place’; a place located east of Savannah, Georgia, where a Negro family felt safe from the oppression of racism in 1927. Here he married Anna Mae Bacon, they worshiped together at the New Hope Baptist Church, they raised their children, and they purchased land to add to their small spread.

Fast forward to 2010 and Hugh is now buried in the New Hope Baptist Church Cemetery. Anna Mae is 98 years old and of sound mind. She has held a secret for more than fifty years and decided to share it with her great great granddaughter. By the end of her story she makes a decision that will change the lives of her entire family.
