About the Book

In an era where there were no televisions, limited school books and education, the one-room segregated schoolhouse in the woods of the south, off the main dirt road, housed all the brown, colored and negro children as they sang praises to Du Pont. With only a few windows and only one entrance, friends, family and neighbors, every child in varying grades, learned everything together. Songs and Poems strengthened and empowered the souls of these young beings. Documenting the beginnings of her mother’s childhood is a shared experience of a colorful and simplistic existence of creative imagination and gifted memorization. The dolls made from old rags and straw, came to life with the stories and songs performed creating pictorial extracts and time travel before bed.
