Bill Bryant understood the human condition

Bill Bryant has taken his leave and has departed physically from Mother Earth. She and all of her creations, those of the land and trees where they assemble, or those within the bodies of water where they thrive, have felt his presence and shall continue to do so.

He touched the sensibilities and the silliness of humans with words and deeds. He was known to share a tall-tale spun for wit and glee or to challenge us with facts of life for purposeful commitment.

William Turner Bryant’s understanding of the human condition heralded most loudly as he intersected and wove the life and legacy of Nat Turner into today's narrative. He is celebrated for his insights and proclamations.

Peace and love to his family.
