Film: Palmour Street (1957)

Film produced by African Americans to instruct basic child psychology. Set in small, rural town in Georgia in the 1950s. My mother never used a washboard, 'though she told me Grandma had. We had 2 cars. This looks like the 1920s, rather than the 50s, by comparison. See why Mom's family INSISTED we ONLY call ourselves "white?" I grew up in a white suburb of Los Angeles.
