P.L. Blake: The Move to Birmingham, Alabama

P.L. Blake and Shirley F. Blake had lived in the Greenwood, Mississippi area for years -- for Mr. Blake since he was a child. In 2008 they were no longer to be found living in the area. They moved to a residential area south of Birmingham, into a new home in a housing development.

Records show they moved to 2101 Christina Cove, Birmingham, Alabama in 2008. See the Huffington Post Campaign Contribution Records.

The home is in a new residential area. It is not unlike other homes in the neighborhood. See, e.g.,

It must have been hard for the Blakes to leave Greenwood. Their roots in the area must have been very deep, even into the mysteries of the place, the land, the treasures of historical events. Such a move would have broken one's heart.
