    • "Selima Ann Berdan was not born in Flint, Michigan. She was born in Ontario, Canada. The Canadian border was pretty porous then. When her mother would reply to the question of 'Where were you born?' Selima would say she was from Flint and my grandmother, Lucille, would snort and turn away. Selima had come across the border someplace other than a checkpoint. Selima was a tough cookie." --Robert Clark
