A Quote by Margaret Walker on memory, women, and words

My grandmothers are full of memories/ Smelling of soap and onions and wet clay/ With veins rolling roughly over quick hands/ They have many clean words to say,/ My grandmothers were strong. Margaret Walker (1915 - ____) US writer, educator From Lineage; quoted in The Black Woman's Gumbo Ya-Ya, by Terri L. Jewell, 1993.
