Being from South Central Los Angeles, Mother had never experienced any type of lavish lifestyle. That all changed when she met Reverend Ike. Before she knew it she was eating caviar and picking out dresses from fancy Beverly Hills stores. She has a fondness from this time period in her life that I hope everyone gets to experience at some point in their lives. She is smiling throughout this entire episode, and even though it’s only audio, you can see it.

The Jonestown Massacre, orchestrated by Jim Jones, is an infamous part of U.S. history. On November 18, 1978, 909 people died, most of whom took their own lives at the request of Jim Jones. One of those people was Christine Miller. Mother knew both Jim and Christine, but Christine was a good friend and mentor. In today’s episode, Mother relives that experience and tells you what it was like meeting Jim Jones, as well as why Christine Miller was important in her life.

Between 1979 and 1981 there were close to 30 children that were murdered near the Atlanta, Georgia area. The entire country looked on frightened and confused, waiting for the police to capture somebody. These feelings were felt even in California. In today’s episode, mother discusses how she and her family dealt with the Atlanta Murders, and how the black community responds to police. It is a pretty wide ranging conversation, hope you enjoy.

Mother has had many difficult times in her life, one of which was when she was homeless. After her husband left her, took her car and all of the money in her bank account, mother was left without a home and without much help. She turned to her church, but did not receive a substantial amount of help. Yet, she recovered. She persevered and got back on her feet, for herself and her children. This is that story.
