The Blogger Black Southern Belle posted Black Women Juke Joint Owners and Food Heritage.
http://Wolcott, Marion Post, photographer. Negro migratory workers by a “juke joint” ?, Belle Glade, Fla. United States Florida Belle Glade, 1941. Feb. Photograph. https://www.loc.gov/item/2017877542/.
The Post included photos, such as the link above, from my birthplace, Belle Glade, FL, transporting me back over 60 years. I can “see” a young Ollie Eugene Carter (Uncle Brother/Mandaddy) in such places. One of the few times I saw my Mama Carter and my Mother seriously mad at beloved Brother was when he drove my sister and I (roughly 6 and 4 years old) to a joint and left us outside in the car, in the heat, bringing us orange sodas and junk food. We adored Mandaddy and begged to be taken with him. We were so young and this misadventure became a fun memory cause we survived; nobody was gonna mess with Mandaddy’s little kin girls. My Dad moved us to Pennsylvania for better job and school opportunities. The Muck runs deep. I can still hear the music blasting out the open doors of that joint.
