Ethel Waters in Chester County - early 20th Century

from His Eye Is On the Sparrow, page 18:

We had one family link...with prostitution. This was Blanche, one of Mom's nieces, who was only seven or eight years older than I... Being hardly more than a child herself, Blanche often played with me, read me stories, and sang little songs with me. Her beauty fascinated me. I loved her.
