This second edition is a scanned reproduction of the unique original hard-bound book. Growing up in the Deep South in the 1930s, African Americans, then called Negroes, were considered to be lower in status than their Caucasian counterparts. Discrimination in its mildest form embodied a sense of superiority, and limitations for Negroes were customary in all facets of life. The term “women” was reserved for black adult females, while white adult females were termed “ladies” —a subtle distinction, but limiting nonetheless. As a young child, these realities were not yet established, allowing a reasonable amount of interaction without prejudice. The creation of this childhood reverie is meant to illuminate the fact that discrimination is learned and practiced to varying degrees. It celebrates the joy that can be present in the lives of those who haven’t yet learned the lessons of assigning negative values to those we are taught to consider inferior.
