The Carolina Chocolate Drop’s Rhiannon Gibbens vision of “down home country life” almost matches the world I grew up with in 1950’s & ’60 Oklahoma, except hers has a mixing of races which I never saw. Perhaps a growing honoring and celebrating woman has helped change the world since I was “A Country Girl” The shameful behaviors of our past are being slowly replaced be connection and recognition of one an others humanity. Or more to the point dancing together! The lady making biscuits in the video looks like my grandmother back then or maybe me now.
