November 15 - December 16, 2007

Birdie Birdie’s life parallels the history of contemporary African-American life, from the fields of Mississippi to the gritty streets of Chicago, and the stories of her life—told as she prepares her husband for a journey and bakes her son a cake—reveal the hardships and joys of the struggles shared in late 20th century America.
