Florida Girl is a personal and historical depiction of a way of life that was typical for many African Americans families whose existence in this country began with the shackles of slavery continuing into the Civil Rights era of the nineteen sixty's.
In the search to find links to her family history the author discovers the white slave owner of her paternal Great Great Grandfather Henry Sorey. She has also traced the maternal link to her Great Grandfather and Great Grandmother, Willis and Easter Smith Dixon.
These stories could not be told without reflecting on her life and sharing a part of her soul. The author maintains the love, respect and admiration for her family and a close-knit community.
She is thankful that she has lived to write her stories. Stories that are part of the legacy of herself; her family; Clearwater, Florida; Pinellas County and the state of Florida.
