How did the daughter of a prominent lawyer, counselor to the segregationist Mississippi Governor Ross Barnett, become a civil rights activist and free thinking liberal?  Join us Wednesday, July 20 for Tomatoes in the Trenches Blog Talk Radio Show when we have the pleasure of interviewing Norma Watkins author of a riveting memoir: The Last Resort:  Taking the Mississippi Cure.  Her memoir begins in 1943, when she is a carefree 7 year old loved by her family and their black staff and takes us to 1966, when she is a discontented 30 year old wife and mother of 4 children smothering under the strictures of genteel southern living.  Listen in Live this Wednesday, July 20 at 2 PM EST or 11 AM PST or on demand at your leisure. This is certain to be a fascinating discussion of one woman’s soul searching journey on the road to self discovery.
