Oral history.; Annie Maude Cummins was born in 1908 in Possumneck, Mississippi. Her early years were spent on her family's 120-acre farm where they raised their own food and grew cotton, corn, and peas. As a young girl, the typical day included waking up at 5 am to help her mother with chores, picking cotton on the farm, and churning butter. She received her early education on her family's property until the local school was consolidated. Cummins then played basketball for the school and was part of the winning team at the Attala County Championship. Throughout her life, Cummins had a passion for both reading and education. Cummins worked in the Possumneck store as a clerk.
