Over Troubled Water

Strengthening the relationships between all African ancestored descendants

Tuesday, August 9, 2011

The recent happenings in Jackson, Mississippi has triggered the memory of a song I wrote telling the story about when we escaped from Mississippi in the 1960's.  My mom had gotten tired of being mistreated and cheated.

She left and went to Florida to find a place that was better and safer for us.  As a child, I did not understand and was sad to see her leave.  Many were left there, but my mom came back for us.  I am so happy about that.  This is one of the songs I dedicated to my mom for her courage in removing us from that place.

The song, "Blues of My Soul,"  is available on my album, "Butter on My Roll."

Please join us tomorrow night at 8PM EST on Over Troubled Water Blog Talk Radio for our show Oral History and the Origins of The Blues.  Sheba will be our special guest along with Miami-Dade professor, Rob Moore.
