Songs of the South


Jr. Walker & The All Stars

WAY BACK HOME

This song makes me remember growing up in Jim Crow South.

St. Phillip A. M. E Church

With Christmas almost here, I am reminded of Christmas time, when the churches would give each girl and boy a brown paper bag stuffed with hard candy, an apple, orange and a pair of Bobbie Socks, boys socks, or stockings for the teens.  The people in this picture were members of St. Phillip A. M. E. Church, in Charleston, South Carolina, and were like my extended family members. My Papa was the Associate Pastor and is seated next to my Aunt Lily on the first row far right. My Great Grandmother Dah, is standing to his left. On the very top row is my mama, Josephine Wilson, and I am on the bottom row third from the left.

Feeling so very grateful this morning for the way my parents conducted themselves and for the way I was raised. Memories of being loved as a child in that little cottage we lived in on Jackson street and later,after Papa died, and we moved to Huger Street.

In spite of the tone expressed, of race hatred and religious intolerance, in our country at this time; I believe that there are more people in this world who want peace and unity among the races than there are those with racist intentions seeking to divide us as a nation.  Media attention however, is less likely to focus on those groups of people as regularly as they focus on those with negative outlooks and views. As a country, we have not too far in the past traveled that road of segregating the races based on skin color.  It should not be a path that we as a nations want to travel again.
