||Lackawann Blues - A Place Worth Remembering|
What a wonderful African-American story! For those who can relate to Lackawanna Blues, it will make you nostalgic and appreciative of the efforts of those African-American ancestors who did everything they could to protect their families from the ugliness of a segregated society.

||Lackawanna Blues is great!|
I have seen the movie several times, and each time I enjoy it. The music and the actors were very entertaining, and gave a glipse of how things use to be for negroes in cities everywhere.
