A weekly-ish blog sharing my series of collages about growing up in the South during the 1950s.

WE WANT A PARADE!
The Lutcher Stark High School 1958 Homecoming Parade in Orange, Texas, was cancelled because the city refused to continue giving their support. Students, very upset at that unfair decision, "organized" the traditional homecoming parade anyway. Traffic signals were ignored. After proceeding only a few blocks disaster struck - several cars were stopped by police. Our names, phone numbers and parents' names were recorded and it wasn't long before disaster struck again!
