 "Dinner At Big Mamma's House"  We dressed up when we went to 'Mother's house'--we called our 'big mamma'--'Mother.'  She was the matriarch of our family.She insisted that all of her children and grandchildren learn music. She was strict yet, loving. We had to practice and play music everyday, as she was our music teacher and the music teacher for most of Harlem's children 'back in the day.' We all had to perform something wonderful on the spot! Please join host Antoinette Harrell and her special guest Sylvia Isabell-Lewis.
