African American

This question might sound mean, but I have to write a journal where I take on the role of an African American woman in the 1930's (the woman is not educated).

Does anyone know how they talked differently than people who spoke proper English?

Like thes words:
suh (for: sir) and hafta (for: have to. Like if some African Americans put an s to picks when it's supposed to be picked.
