Why Mammy’s?

In 2007, Gaynell Brady began researching her family tree. Through genealogical research, evidence revealed her family has lived in Louisiana for over 200 years.

After careful analysis of her family tree she noticed there was one theme that was prevalent among all of her mammies—the desire to make each generation stronger and smarter. The inspiring stories of her mammies left her with a sense of pride, strength, and courage. 

"Plant a seed, so the next generation can enjoy the fruit of the trees." 

In 2013, Mammy's was created to honor legacy of those who sacrificed their lives to take care of others. Every seed Mammy planted in Louisiana soil blossoms in classrooms, libraries, community center, home, church, museum, and fields. Her sacrifices are acknowledged with every presentation and will never be forgotten.
