Novelist and Professor Bridgett Davis shares the triumphant story of her mother, who ran an illegal street lottery in Detroit for more than thirty years. Fannie Davis’ numbers business provided a comfortable life for her children, who grew up in a loving home, attended the best schools and wore the best clothes. But Fannie’s success required determination, ingenuity, and courage in a risk-laden environment, all while fending off rivals and avoiding law enforcement’s watchful eye.
