A Black Girl’s Song tells of the journey of the late Jimmie Lee Elliott, a Birmingham woman who experiences a series of nearly debilitating relational, emotional and racial experiences, but goes on to become the first woman to reach the level of EAS-22 Postmaster in Alabama’s postal system. Jimmie’s is a life of interruptions, precipitated and agitated by money issues, mental breakdowns and men. But for her cast-iron will, she would have abandoned her thorny path to greatness as it had more dry patches than grassy places.
