Join the Book Club on Zoom to discuss our nonfiction pick for May: The World According to Fannie Davis: My Mother’s Life in the Detroit Numbers by Bridgett M. Davis.
In 1958, Fannie Davis borrowed $100 from her brother to run a numbers racket out of her home.
Part bookie, part banker, mother, wife, and granddaughter of slaves, Fannie ran her numbers business for thirty-four years, doing what it took to provide a prosperous life for her family in the city of Detroit.
