description
Cast chorus of "The Flapper Grandmother" presented in the Wingate Memorial Hall by the Wake Forest Parent -Teachers Association and directed by Miss Thelma Richardson. In the middle of the cast is a man dressed in blackface. Blackface was and is culturally insensitive and racist. This and similar materials in this collection do not mirror the views of Wake Forest University, but serves as a portrayal of the social mindsets and occurrences of the time that it was produced.
