Church agitator, choir director, pulpit search committee member. She is cantankerous for no apparent reason at all except that she was born Black, her momma was Black, her daddy was Black, and she has no intentions of changing the fact that she is Black, and she is Mabel – “take it or leave it!” She is raw and honest. She is probably the one character that could cause Ruth to crack a smile, bow her head, and shake it once or twice. She will speak her mind, will not hold her tongue, and will not turn a cheek or be crossed easily. She is one of the last people you might expect to see in heaven but will be one of the first persons standing there, looking at you when you arrive.
