7. I was 9 in Florida school in 1957, too!

But, I don't remember doing blackface, but do remember my father doing it on stage somewhere in Ft. Lauderdale.

Also remember segregated water fountains, bathroom, schools, etc.

One time I went to get a drink at a "coloreds only" water fountain in a department store. My mother screamed at me not to touch it. I went ahead and got a drink. I couldn't understand what the big deal was.
