"Born in Tallaliatchie County, Mississippi, which at that time was the "heart" of our country's segregation practices, Vera Pigee grew up in a tri-county area where segregation was the order of the day.
Experiencing personal involvement in harassment of Negroes during her earlier years embedded within her a burning desire to do something about it. IT being the color barrier--where pigmentation was considered far more important than education for qualifications.
Plantation owners fought the influx of big industry, for the sole purpose of keeping wages low and hiring cheap, black labor." - the blurb on the back of the dj.
