“But, Miss Divine never brought you a mango until it was rrrotten!”
(L-R: James Ransom; Dave Isay; Cherie Johnson)
So spoke Cherie Johnson about Sunday school teacher, Miss Divine. StoryCorps alumni and special guests, cousins Cherie Johnson and James Ransom, drove from Tampa, Florida, to join Dave Isay during yesterday’s book signing at the Orlando Public Library.
It was an honor and privilege to meet Cherie Johnson and James Ransom.
Cherie Johnson and James Ransom’s memories of Miss Divine can be found in the “Home and Family” section of StoryCorps’ first book, Listening is an Act of Love: A Celebration of American Life from the StoryCorps Project.
