Edwin and Denise White

DAY 012 – Edwin and Denise White photographed exclusively for the 100 Men Hall People Project (100MHPP).

Denise – We didn’t move here until four and half years ago, and Edwin had moved here nine months before that. The first time we came was New Year’s Eve. We weren’t married but had known each other 24 years, and I didn’t know how people around here would accept us. We came to see Little Freddie King, and I looked around and thought okay, it’s okay, and we got married. I felt connected to this community.
