mother of Sandra Harris in her modeling days.

"There is a lot to be learned subtly and obviously by young Black girls about womanhood from a Lady. Being a lady is different from being a woman, as I learned growing up with my mother in relationship to Daddy and from other women. It was typical in the middle of the 20th century to build and maintain one's mystique. It was deliberate. It was vital to dignity, safety and fundamental to the sense of being powerful in a society not sympathetic to purpose in essence, or Negro women's honor." - Gregory E. Woods, Keeper of Stories 9.28.16
