Summary
  • Bigmamma Didn't Shop at Woolworth's. Not just because things cost more there than from the hawker who drove through the Candy Hill neighborhood from time to time, but because in the 1950s black shoppers were not very welcome in white Texas towns like Bryan.

  • Outdoor toilets, back stairs to balcony seating in the movies - but also the love and warmth of everyday life in the segregated neighborhood. In the tradition of To Kill a Mockingbird, yet more stirring because of its real-life perspective, she tells her story of a time before the civil rights movement of the 1960s with immediacy and poignancy
