Sinopsis:

From the slave ship to the present, Miss Mamie ruled, influenced and controlled her heirs through her daughter, Mamie, aptly named after her. Miss Mamie's daughter, Janie, grew and prospered under her mother's power and carried on their traditions, heritage and ancestry. Their escape to Virginia, the free-slave state, proved to be a ground-breaking adventure for all of Miss Mamie's family, especially Janie, who came to be known as, 'Miss Mamie's Girl'. The life of the child of a slave, to one of the wealthiest women in Jakesville, Virginia, Miss Mamie, Janie and their families became a family to be honored and recognized. Their efforts and contributions led to many prosperous and fast growing towns, communities and cities. Their ultimate quest to keep all family ties and culture alive catapulted them into many surprising twists and turns before the entire family was re-united and all striving for the same cause . . . recognition, freedom and unity. Everyone that came into their family by blood or by association was soon embraced just by being one of Miss Mamie's. There were many ups and down, revelation s and many skeletons pulled from the family's closet, but in the end the family would eventually 'make lemonade from those lemons'. 'Miss Mamie's Girl' is meant to be a catalyst for us to continue to teach, remember and practice the heritage, culture and tradition left to us by our ancestors and to make it a lifelong goal to remember and cherish our own . . . Miss Mamie and her girl (s).

About the Author:

I was born in 1949, in a small black neighborhood on highway 49 in Ramseur, North Carolina. I moved to Durham, NC in 1973 with my three children, Cleette, Allysia and Ronnie. Durham was home until 1978 when I married my military husband. We moved to Fayetteville, N.C. in 1980, and later to Tacoma, Washington in 1982, where my husband was assigned. In Tacoma I became legal guardian of my first grandchild, Saadia (1984), and my daughter Ardra was born (1986). Back in Durham in 1987 . . . 25 years later . . . Miss Mamie's Girl.
