  •  
    Powers turned her attention to her family genealogy, trying to find out more about her great-aunt Celia Mudd, who was born into slavery but eventually inherited the rural Kentucky farm in Nelson County on which she spent all her life. Powers found a 1902 will in which Sam Lancaster, whose father had bought the farm, left all 500 acres to Georgia's Aunt Celia. Lancaster's surviving brother sued and the case went to Kentucky's highest court, yet most newspapers declined to report about it. After winning the case Celia Mudd become a local philanthropist. Powers wrote up this family history as a novel.
