Miss Crisp, a Pitt County, N.C., native, has had a varied career as a poet, journalist, religious counselor, and art museum administrator. Among her published works are two volumes of poetry, Brief Testament and Spring Fever.
In this interview Miss Crisp reads the dialectal verse which makes up Spring Fever. The poems are in Negro dialect and reflect life in the Falkland community of rural Pitt County during the early twentieth century. For related material see Collection #154.
