Alabama Daisy Black and Poor in the Deep South
These are the exciting memoirs of an articulate black lady, who survived the destitution of her childhood by scavenging in the Mobile , Alabama , city dump. She lived in the segregated South during the era of Civil Rights demonstrations. As a mother of six, she overcame the shock of discovering she was one of several wives with whom her itinerant preacher husband claimed conjugal privileges. She became an artist’s model in Boston, where she experienced racist terror and love of a white man. This is a beautiful, upbeat book of love, happiness and the survival of the spirit.
