About Willie White

The film is based on a series of audio interviews with Willie White about the memories she has from growing up in Mason, TN. Willie is currently 88-years old and lives in Durham, North Carolina with her daughter and primary caregiver, Phyllis Wyrick.  In 2006, Willie was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. Though she struggles to remember daily tasks like taking a bath, making a meal and taking her medications, she still has traces of memory that have endured the unforgiving trail of disease.
