This chapter presents Eunice's first trip to New York City when she was twelve, and which scarcely prepared her for life as a Juilliard student. The trip was an eight-week summer vacation organized around family, with everyone—Kate, Eunice, Dorothy, and the babies, Frances and Sam—staying on 129th Street where Lucille, Eunice's oldest sister, lived. Her husband was in the service, so she was glad to have the company even if things were crowded. Kate had used that summer of 1945 to earn some extra money at a factory job, but work took second place to her love of the church. The side benefits were visits to other boroughs as she preached her way around the area's black church circuit, her three daughters in tow reunited as the singing Waymon sisters.

Keywords:   Eunice, New York City, Juilliard student, summer vacation, black church circuit, singing Waymon sisters
