Audio Essay: Katrina Grigg-Saito's "The Original Feminist"

Keeping the Mother's Day energy going for a few days beyond the holiday, we've chosen Katrina Grigg-Saito's essay about her grandmother for today's audio at Grub Daily. Grigg-Saito's "The Original Feminist" provides a tender portrait of her grandmother Mimi who did it all--worked as a hairdresser, raised five children, tailored stylish clothes, and advocated for education--in the pre-Civil-Rights South. Following her grandmother's example, Grigg-Saito does it all, artistically. She writes, films, photographs and records her travels across the globe.
