|Bigmama Didn't Shop|
Bigmama Didn't Shop at Woolworth's is a book that developed from syndicated columns I wrote for some Hearst Knight-Ridder Newspapers in the 1990s. The columns consisted of vignettes from my childhood with my grandmother, Bigmama, in the Jim Crow South and particularly in Central Texas during the 1950s and 1960s.
