What's on my mind?

Browse these pages and follow the exploits of a poor little Colored girl, who came of age in the Jim Crow city                                           of Sumter, South Carolina during the '60s, and now has made a home — and a respected name for herself —                                             in Westchester County, New York. 



               My journey has been an excursion

               through high mountains and low valleys.

               Education, life experience and friendship

               have sustained me. Now, I turn to look back, 

               in search of the meaning of all that has happened.
