Black Culture Shock

When Marjorie's father first had his homestead around Provost, his was the only Black family in the area. This was not a matter of concern; the family had been in the area for so long. Aside from one other Black family in nearby Macklin, Saskatchewan, there were no other Blacks in the area. Marlene shares her recollections and discusses the shock of meeting her husband's family: the first time she had ever seen so many Blacks in one place at the same time.
