Big Daddy Virgil
Carter never met his Dad. Grandma Callie taught Big Daddy all about math, spelling, geography and science.
He was smart beyond his years.
Head smart and handsome.
Like a tall glass of water.
That Clark Gable,
Johnny Hartman kind of handsome.
6 ft. 4 inches tall,
light skinned with shiny straight hair,
he used a pomade to help it lay flat.
Mulatto was how some would describe him.
That’s what they called a person of mixed white and black ancestry…
