A 41-year tradition continues this weekend in Jackson, Mississippi, with the annual St. Patrick’s Day parade, featuring the sweet potato queens.
It all started when Jill Connor Browne and a few of her friends formed the Queens.
And in the years since then, it has become an honored tradition — and has spawned several bestselling books.
I first met Jill Conner Browne in 2001, after publication of her second book, God Save The Sweet Potato Queens.
So here now, from 2001, Jill Conner Browne.
Jill Conner Browne still reigns as the Queen Bee of the Sweet Potato Queens.
The Sweet Pottato Queens have chapters in over twenty countries.
