Listen to our new radio show: SEEDS AND THEIR PEOPLE!

Ep. 12: Mrs. Pearlie Mae Jackson Trotter: a Jewel of the Mississippi Delta

Ep. 12: Mrs. Pearlie Mae Jackson Trotter: a Jewel of the Mississippi Delta

This interview overflows with deep wisdom, rough experience and a heapin’ side of humor all in Ms. Pearl’s pecan smooth Mississippi cadence and style. It is uncharacteristically long for our conversations and we know you will be BLESSED by every minute! Ms. Pearl is a daughter of the delta and migrated north. She was born and raised in what would today be considered deep poverty in the then and now poorest state of the union in a time and place where slavery was dead in name only.  White supremacy and deep oppression of the working class was and remains a very real and present danger to peace, health, economic and spiritual progress in our beloved Mississippi.

There will be some parts of Ms. Pearl’s personal life story that might be hard for some listeners to hear.  Also Ms. Pearl will be speaking from her deep life experiences, in her dialect and through her ways of knowing the world in which she matured.  Please listen as always with a beginner's mind and an open heart to her intense sharing. Due to strong language and vivid descriptions of racist violence, this may not be suitable listening for young children.
