Bipeds of Brookland: Paul Artisst

Paul Artisst was born in DC and recounts sitting on a bush to watch Franklin Roosevelt’s Inauguration parade, being an official at Mike Tyson’s last fight, and many details from an extraordinary life in between.  Born in DC, he grew up in the segregated city suffering through the Great Depression.  His parents worked hard to support their family, always sharing with their neighbors and stressing the importance of education. He remembers wandering around downtown near the White House and swimming in the reflecting pool by the Lincoln Memorial and in the Tidal Basin. “It was enjoyable to be down there, and across the Tidal Basin, where the Jefferson memorial is now, that wasn’t there then.”

Sr. Licia Lupinacci

Sr. Licia Lupinacci was born the ninth child of a family in a village in southern Italy.  She remembers Germans troops occupying a village nearby and hearing American planes bombing before Allied troops landed.  Two of her older sisters had joined the Little Workers of Sacred Heart and so she spent much time visiting the convent as a child.  At 16, she decided to become a sister, too.

 

At 20, she came to the US, landing at Ellis Island and speaking no English. She and other nuns traveled to DC to work at the St Josaphat Ukrainian Catholic Seminary on Taylor St.

 

In 1973, the sisters moved to their current house on 15th Street, NE. They furnished it with donations from neighbors. One day a neighbor
