The Crumb Snatcher
by Mabel Nunn In The Crumb Snatcher, a young black girl growing up in Alabama during the 1940s and 50s questions the division of the races, schools, churches, and even the bathrooms and drinking fountains. Bigotry and ignorance abound in places where she thought she could feel safe, such as school and church. She suffers molestation from family members, whippings from braided tree branches, and iron cords or jars smashed against her head. She never had a toothbrush or was seen by a dentist. She was drenched with panic attacks so horrific that she lay in a urine-soaked bed, crowded with siblings, wanting to die. This chilling book cries out to be read. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Mabel Nunn wrote her lifes story out of a drastic need to heal a lifetime of wounds. She was tired of feeling hopelessness, loneliness, and despair; she needed closure. The only way to do this was to begin the arduous task of peeling away the layers of her past, confronting the ghosts along the way. When she finished The Crumb Snatcher, Mabel Nunn leaned her manuscript against the wall and cried for over an hour. She had finally brought closure to this passage of her life, and a profound healing came over her. (2004, paperback, 32 pages) Availability: Usually ships in 2-3 business days.
