    In the Spirit of Sankofa,



    ... Ms Servilla, bless her heart, told the truth and nothing but the truth; great interview Sister Destee.

    My, my, my how times have changed... There was a time when doors weren't locked and fastened down. And yes, neighbors could spank you for acting up, tell your parents and they would give you a whopping also, yep.

    On the sweet potato pie recipes:) ... you may want to record her rather then write it down, since Ms Servilla doesn't measure much any more, and cooks from scratch, lol.



    Peace In,
