My Greatgrandmother (BIG MAMA) was my first teacher. She was the daughter of a former slave , known to me as Papa Jones. She and her siblings were taught at home. She could read on the College level. Her hand writing style was Old English. She told me many stories about her upbringing. Those stories have inspired me for many years. That is the motivating factor that gave me understanding of having an education.
