"When I wrote Bigmama Didn’t Shop At Woolworth’s, based on syndicated columns I had written for Hearst and Knight-Ridder newspapers," Nash said. "I was not writing about race relations, specifically. I was writing about growing up with my part-Comanche maternal grandmother, Bigmama, in the 1950s and ‘60s.  It just so happened that my life occurred during a period deeply steeped in racism that ushered in the period of Jim Crow laws and the modern Civil Rights Movement. Under those circumstances, it would be difficult not to at least touch upon racism and race relations. My life was good. We didn’t sit around thinking and talking about segregation when it wasn’t being thrown in our faces. We found joy in an ordinary day."

Bigmama Didn’t Shop At Woolworth’s is listed in the Bibliographic Guide to Black Studies by the Schomburg Center in New York and recommended for Native American collections by the Miami-Dade Public Library System in Florida.

"Bigmama didn't shop at Woolworth's because black shoppers were not welcome.
