Who is the primitive when two cultures clash in one small Virginia town?
By: Outskirts Press, Inc.
April 13, 2015 - PRLog -- Two women, two races: They come together in two distinct eras – post-World War II and post-Civil Rights – in the touching new contemporary fiction, Virginia Primitive, published by Outskirts Press.

In the Jim Crow South of the 1940s, black women – unacknowledged back-door citizens – nonetheless perform vital parenting to white children. Sally, a young white girl, looks to Lila, an African-American, for love and support, and loves her completely in return.

After the Civil Rights era of the 1960s, the world declared that Jim Crow was dead. But in the 1980s, Sally returns to the Southern town of her childhood to renew her relationship with Lila, and finds the cultural divide very much alive. The reunion embroils her in a battle over land rights, families, responsibilities. And love.

“Primitive” is what happens when the primal is repressed – when we have to choose between the people we love and the people we are supposed to love …
