Publisher's Summary

Growing Up in Mississippi is a true story. Bertha's story. But more than that, it is the story of what it was like for many young Black girls of her generation to be born into poverty and to grow up surrounded by the meanest forms of racial discrimination, to be educated in run-down, second rate schools, to marry early and work long hours for low pay just to keep food on the table. You'll hear about the wayward Uncle Wigley, a cursed character among many Black families who resorted to inflicting abuse on family members. This is a poignant work of literature and classic for the millennium.
