have stories when my mom went to The StateTheatre in Over about he 50’s, we only the “white” people in the audience . I was a teenager, born in 1941. I went to the State Theater from 1955 and saw the last show, featuring Brook Benton a Connie Francis.

I have one story when I took my brother to introduce him to doo wop in the 50’s. The price jumped up ( also we walked from the south end (Vernon Street) to the north end of Hartford.

We got turned away. A man with a gray hair , limp, and goatee told the cashier to let us in for the money we had. When the show started he was the MC (The Hound Dog)
