Happy Birthday, Addy! Addy was born this day in 1855, which makes her 161 today!
In her book, Happy Birthday, Addy, Addy doesn't know what day she was born because slave owners don't remember stuff like that about slaves. Her friend M'dear inspires her to claim a birthday (with Addy choosing April 9) and the whole city celebrates on that day.
QUESTION FOR COMMENTS: What are you doing for Addy's birthday?
MY ANSWER: I'm bringing Beth (my renamed Addy doll) to the mall today.
