My grandmother had ten sisters and when I was seven she told me this story. It was apparent at an early age that the oldest of the daughters had a special talent. She was an excellent seamstress and could make beautiful dresses from simple materials. At the age of fifteen she left the family farm and moved to the city. She soon found a job as a seamstress at a small shop. In the city, she discovered a newfound freedom and because she inherited her father’s milky skin and her mother’s jet black wavy hair she soon realized that she could easily pass as white. A year later she married and five children soon followed. She never returned home to the family farm and stopped all contact with her family except an occasional letter at Christmas. In her new life she had found something…and she did not want to add the dark black blemish of her identity to her new white life. Somewhere, I have five cousins who have no idea there mother is a black woman, with roots and family rich in heritage and culture, born on a faraway farm in a not so faraway land. Her name was Bella but everyone called her Bug.
