Summary
Hush Now, Baby" is the story of how a little white girl climbed out of an uneasy childhood in the segregated South on the backbone of a black woman who loved her unabashedly. A host of African-American women permeated Southern families. One of those stalwart women was Eva Aiken, a central figure in the author s life from her birth until Eva staged a sit-in at the girl's wedding. The story captures the glorious early years of the Lowcountry South Carolina family then graphically depicts its unraveling. Eva holds them together. The family and the country s parallel struggles converge. The author lives in bubble-wrap until Civil Rights issues escalate. This story is told without pathos and with graceful restraint the Southern way
