Known as Diamond Teeth Mary for the jewels she placed in her teeth in the 1940s, Mary was born in West Virginia, and always claimed to be the half sister of fellow blues singer Bessie Smith. In 1918, she moved to Florida's Gulf Coast. During her later years, she lived in Bradenton, Florida.

In 1986, she won the Florida Folk Heritage Award in 1986. She died on 4 April 2000. In the interview, she discusses the start of her career; blues music; various groups she performed with; performing with George Burns, Bessie Smith, and Sarah Vaughan; minstrel shows; her family history; her conversion to Christianity in 1962; and her work in churches.
