Black in the USA

After having travelled in Canada, Dwain spent time in California, Chicago, Detroit, Texas, and Florida to find out what life was like in the United States. He and some cousins started a small recording business and stayed in Los Angeles for five years. He made grave errors, forgetting he was in the United States. He avoided Black communities and avoided ghetto parties. His stay in the United States left him with a renewed appreciation of Canada.
