"Sunday Visitors"

Have you ever wondered why no African American families ever lived in certain areas and towns?  Prior to 1960, towns and villages such as Alexandria, Butler and Williamstown, just to name a few, were never inhabited by Black families.

The Goforth community, where I grew up, was no exception. We were a sheltered community. We basically were all the same color, the same religion, same ethnic origin, and usually voted the same way. I can remember the first Black family I ever saw.
