The Lott family grew up in Mobile, Alabama—but one by one, each of the seven siblings and their parents moved to Atlanta. At StoryCorps, Deborah Lott-Barnes tells her sisters Patricia Zeigler-Jeter and Kaneta Lott-Cuffie about how her life led her here.

This story was recorded in partnership with Emory University’s Michael C. Carlos Museum. To celebrate their current exhibit, Romare Bearden’s “A Black Odyssey,” the museum is inviting members of the public to come to StoryCorps to tell describe their own personal odysseys.
