The Cotton Pickin Truth
Mae Louise Miller grew up in chattel slavery working from plantation to plantation for White owners in the South where her family picked cotton and she was beaten and raped repeatedly from the age of five. Her story is typical of the horrid accounts of slave life in America during the 19th century, only this saga is not from back then, it is a true story of the present.
Ms. Miller was enslaved until 1961 and there is evidence of slavery today in different parts of America's South.
