Interview by Karen Chronister, The Contributor
Where are you from?
I’m a Mississippian. I was raised chopping cotton and picking cotton. My dad owned his own land and I worked for him. We raised cotton and beans, rice, and wheat. I have three sisters and two brothers. I’m the last born. My dad is the baby. He’s 92.
He’s the baby?
He was my mother’s baby before I came along. I was the last born and not a boy child, so I had it rough.
