Vivian Gibson says she accidentally became an author in her retirement. Scraps of paper she sifted through after her mother passed away eventually became an award-winning memoir. In her memoir, The Last Children of Mill Creek, she tells about how she grew up in a segregated, but thriving community in St. Louis that no longer exists. It was razed when she was a child to build a highway. Highways take us on journeys, and in this video you'll hear about Ms. Gibson's literacy journey along a highway filled with nurturing people who saw her potential.
