Description

Taaz Tarboro Crossley discusses that she never felt that race or racism were issues for her until the television series Roots came out in 1977. She recalls getting car rides from Whites when going to the Southside of Bethlehem. Mrs. Crossley felt safe because the community looked out for each other. She belonged to the Brotherhood Club at Liberty High School and participated in the choir at St. Paul Church. After completing her education at Howard University, she did not return to Bethlehem due to a lack of job opportunities and cultural life.
