THE BIG MAMA STORIES by Shay Youngblood Firebrand Books 141 The Commons, Ithaca, New York 14580 black/womens' studies, 106 pp, softcover $8.95 Shay Youngblood was born and raised in the Deep South of the '60s and says she was "raised by some of the wisest women to see the light of day." You better believe it! Her BIG MAMA STORIES are some of the best yet to be offered from this publisher of excellent lesbian literature. Several of The Mamas have been adapted for stage in Shakin' The Mess Outta Misery. Others just curl into your heart and lend strength and truths to be withdrawn ad lib. The marrator's biological mother, Fannie Mae, may have died from dancing, or because she was too pretty, but Miss Corine said it was because she was a colored woman living in the backward South, and it was before 1956, when integration, equal opportunities, and civil rights demonstrations were on all the TVs and newspapers. Miss Corine knew, too, because she ran the beauty shop on Front Street, and she was in a position to know everybody's life, first, second and third hand. Raised by her Big Mama (who wasn't bid, or even a relative, "She was regular. An old Black woman who had a gift for seeing with her heart. Her body was warm and full of soft places to lean into,") and other big mamas, the girlchild remembers Miss Tom and Miss Lily, who were "sisters alright, but it ain't by blood," and who loved each other with their eyes wide open; Miss Rosa, who was the kindest, most soft-spirited soul living on God's green earth, but whose habits would drive Jesus to take a drink of whiskey. One of her habits was her pets, cats, roosters, snakes, dead and alive. But the killer was her monkey. The heartbreaker story is the one that has been told over and over until it is true, and Spit in The Governer's Tea is a faithful retelling again. There are portraits of good women feeling bad, the flim-flam man, women who saw signs in advice they offered to help her survive as a woman in the white man's world is universal: Keep your own mony - be independent. Stand up for yourself. Keep faith in the Lord. And from Big Mama, "If you don't remember nothing else I tell you, baby, you remember this: if you got to dance or dream or anything at all, take it a step at a time and don't let nothing and nobody get in your way when you be doing right. I ain't saying it's gonna be easy, but we all got a dance to do. You remember this, you hear?" book review by Jazz Paz Sexual Minority Youth Assistance League (SMYLA), Peer support, information and social activities for gay, lesbian, bisexual for youth and young adults ages 16 to 22, 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM, Intracare Hospital, 7601 Fannin « 520- 8336
