“It was the world of Southern, rural, black growing up, of folks sitting on porches day and night, of folks calling your mama, cause you walked by and didn’t speak, and of the switch waiting when you got home so that you could be taught some manners. It was a world of single black older women schoolteachers, dedicated, tough; they had taught your mama, her sisters, and her friends. They knew your people in ways that you never would and shared their insight, keeping us in touch with generations. It was a world where we had a history. ”
