by Eloise Greenfield Author, Lessie Jones Little Author
(from the back cover) A grandmother living in a Southern mill town at the turn of the century; a mother winning the hard-fought right to vote; a daughter born the year of the Great Depression. Three generations of black women remember their "child times" in this lyrical memoir spanning a century of American history. Their memories are sometimes happy, sometimes sad, but always vivid. Not simply a chronicle of one black family, this book preserves the lives and communities of times past for future generations.
