  • It's time.
  • Chapter two
  • Can't you two at least try to enjoy this once in a lifetime view
  • Chapter three
  • Are You These Colored Girls Mama, Are You Cecile Johnson?
  • Yes. Come On Girls
  • Hi, I'm Delphine and these are my sisters Vonetta and Fern, our Grandmother who we call Big Ma and our Pa notice that our Mother isn't here. She never will be actually we're going to see her. See she left us a few years back. Before Fern was even on the bottle Big Ma really doesn't want us to go and wants to convince Pa to stop us from going (she's failing)
  • Chapter Four
  • I should have sold you off in Mexico!
  • We're going to Oakland California to visit Cecile, our mother. I think we're all nervous. Vonetta and Fern are nonstop whining and Fern won't let me see the Golden gate bridge and won't stoop to enjoy it herself. All this screaming and whining  and the white people on this plane are looking at us like we're a disgrace to the negro race
  • Chapter Five 
  • NO.
  • We just landed a few minutes ago and after a few minutes of me pretending to search the crowd for the mother I didn't want to find the flight attendant found her and left us after simply asking her if she was our mom then leaving us when she replied yes. Big Ma would have been livid but if she asked I will tell her that she actually asked for ID. 
  • Chapter Six and Seven
  • Seize the time. 
  • Cecile is a terrible mother. She never wanted us to come visit and continues to complain about us being here. I wish Pa had never let us come here. Now we have to stay here for an entire month. However I have to stay strong- or pretend that I am for Vonetta and Fern. They listen to me.
  • She doesn't mean that right?
  • about an hour ago we arrived at Cecile's house Vonetta nearly repeat Big Ma's words and if she doesn't she'll learn. I called Big Ma and Pa on collect call and Big Ma was furious. She said that it would be very expensive which I knew but I really needed to talk to them. We had to pick up Chinese food Cecile didn't even make anything. 
  • But Big Ma said-
  • Vonetta!
  • We finished dinner about five minutes ago and Cecile said she wanted to talk  then the doorbell rang and Cecile sent us away and they went to talk in the living room. Naturally we went to listen.  I think they're black panthers. They keep saying the stuff on black panther posters and calling Cecile Sister Inzilla. 
  • For the people.
