It’s 1959 and after a family tragedy, Bev and Russ are moving out of their Chicago neighbourhood . The knock-down price means that a Black family will be moving in and to the dismay of their neighbor Carl, who tries to tell Bev and Russ – in front of the Black maid Francine, that they are undermining property values.
My mouth literally gaped open just now when I read the headline that television icon Don Cornelius was dead. It then opened wider when I read that he had shot himself!!! “Soul Train” hit the air in 1970 in Chicago, going national in 1971, I was eight. It was uplifting programming, seeing people of color dancing and enjoying themselves while some of the greatest talent in music performed.
