Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0292790996, Paperback)Annie Mae Hunt is a survivor. Born in 1909 near Brenham, Texas, she grew up in a time and place where African Americans, although legally free, lived in circumstances that had changed little since the days of slavery. Much of her adult life was spent in backbreaking domestic service, until she created a modest independence for herself through sewing and selling Avon cosmetics. I Am Annie Mae, told in her own words and edited by Ruthe Winegarten, records a life filled not only with hardships but also with the joys of family, of political activism, and of service to church and community. Since its publication in 1983, this book has touched the hearts of thousands of people and inspired the musical I Am Annie Mae, written by Houston poet Naomi Carrier and Ruthe Winegarten.
