The back-wooded country of St. Luke, on Rt. 1, Ozan in southwest Arkansas. As a child, in this environment, I was exposed to many realistic experiences and expressions that have not been forgotten- the singing, praying and shouting, the infinite love and strength that I felt among my peoplea my Race. Hunting rabbits, gathering pecans, mending fences for the cattle and, of course, picking cotton and hauling hay. I recall the smell of hay mown in July, and hearing the sounds of deep tone bells of the black church for a funeral, or simply gathering for Sunday school or regular service.
