Years ago when people would put advertisements in the newspaper they would advertise, “LIGHT NEGRO OR WHITE NEED ONLY APPLY.” They didn’t want a "Dark Skinned" black person in their home. But Lillie Nelson persevered, and though she started out in life with nothing and nobody, Lillie finished by preparing dinners for President and Mrs. Reagan in their California home.
Despite encountering hard times, despair and racial prejudice, Lillie found the one person who had the answers to all her questions—God. When times changed, Lillie was happy and proud to say, “I am called an African American, now.”
