This book is a real story of how one black girl of many grew up in a segregated Mississippi town. It could have been in any of the Southern States, but hers was Mississippi, where cotton was the money-making commodity and where cotton was grown in the state for the White man by the Black sharecroppers. I write this story so that this generation may know how they got to where they are now. Some of them only get bits and pieces
of their grandmothers and grandfathers' journey from the cotton fields, tobacco fields, beans, cabbages, or wherever field they were planted to the place where they are now. This is their story. Read it, talk about it with your family, and share it with your friends. Yes, there are going to be challenges and obstacles along your life journey; but don't stop, keep hope alive, pray and keep the faith, and never give up on your dreams.
