Anna Mae Bullock was born November 26, 1939, in a small community in Haywood County, Tennessee, called Nutbush. Her childhood school, Flagg Grove School, was moved from its original location in the Flagg Grove community outside Nutbush to the West Tennessee Delta Heritage Center in Brownsville on June 1, 2012.
