Inside this Book – Miami is the southernmost metropolitan city in the United States. This is a Miami story but it starts someplace else. About a thousand miles away, in a region that’s been called “The Most Southern Place on Earth.” I’m not talking about Antarctica. I’m talking about the Mississippi Delta. I was born on January 28, 1976, in Clarksdale, Mississippi. My parents had already moved from Mississippi to Florida a few months prior, in the fall of ’75. But a week before my momma was due she decided to go back. Not for long. We’d all be back in Miami a few weeks later. My momma just wanted me to come into this world surrounded by family. In the place she still considered home. Clarksdale. “The Golden Buckle on the Cotton Belt.” My maternal grandparents, Tommie Fields Jr. and Rosie Lee McAfee-Fields, were born and raised in Alligator, Mississippi, a small town in Bolivar County. After they married in 1947, Tommie and Rosie Lee relocated to the outskirts of Shelby, Mississippi, where my granddaddy rented a forty-acre plot of farmland. These were the days of sharecropping, and with the help of some Mexicans he had working for him my granddaddy worked a cotton field. When the crops came in he’d turn over most of his haul to the white landowner as rent. On December 27, 1950, my grandparents welcomed their first child. My momma, Tommie Ann Fields. She would soon be followed by my uncles and aunties Sammie, Erma, Larry, Edward, Brenda and Linda.
Inside this book –Hurricanes PDF Book by Rick Ross – The first year of my life was spent in a house my parents rented in Hialeah, west of Miami. But I don’t remember a thing about that place. My earliest memories are in Carol City, at the corner of 183rd Street and 39th Court, where my folks bought a small three-bedroom, two-bathroom home in the spring of 1977. Aside from its seafoam-green paint job, my house looked like every other one on the block. Due to the hurricanes all of inner city Miami’s homes are built the same: concrete, reinforced steel bars and stormproof windows. Inside the house everything was concrete too. The ceiling. The walls. The floors. South Florida is too hot for carpet. Behind my house was a set of housing projects. In the bushes that separated my backyard and the apartments lived two junkies. Sometimes I’d watch them from my bedroom window. At night I could only make out the flicker of flame from when they’d light up their crack. The cloud of smoke looked different than when my daddy smoked his cigarettes. He smoked Benson & Hedges Menthol 100’s. The crack smoke was thicker. It almost looked blue. One day my curiosity got the better of me and I decided to get a closer look at the dope fiends’ doghouse. I crawled through the bushes into their makeshift dwelling and stared at all the straight shooters, empty baggies and cans of Schlitz malt liquor strewn about the space. I couldn’t believe there were people who lived like this.
