African American life in Georgia in the 1950s

This purpose of this film, Palmour Street, is to help parents understand the best ways to raise their children, especially in the face of obstacles.

We feel it is worth showing to students because it shows an African American family in rural Georgia in the 1950s as a normal functioning family, important images for all to see as the Civil Rights Movement takes over much of the discussion about Black History beginning in this decade.

It can be shown in contrast to the other major themes of the 50s, consumerism and technicolor.
