Through an oral history interview, artist Georgette Seabrooke Powell talks about her extended family, who owned businesses in Charleston, South Carolina, where she was born in 1916. Her family moved to New York City when Powell was six; she describes living in a tenement building, her time as a student at Washington Irving High School and later Cooper Union, and her experiences during the Harlem Renaissance. Powell talks about a few of her paintings, particularly her early work, and the WPA's Federal Art Project, including the mural "Recreation in Harlem." After moving to Washington, D.C., Powell becomes an art therapist and obtains a degree from Howard University. Powell also talks about Operation Heritage, Art in the Park, and P.S. 6.

Scope and Contents:
Through an oral history interview, Charles H. Clark, born in Charleston, West Virginia, talks about segregation in West Virginia as "more by accommodation rather than by law." He speaks of his well-educated parents who value education, and his siblings who all attended medical school. His family traveled a lot and the Great Depression did not much affect them. Clark found school easy, skipping several grades, and ultimately attending Howard University medical school. He talks about his work for the Navy and Public Health Service; the Old Freedman's Hospital; labor union as a surgical consultant; and his own surgical practice. Clark also speaks of the introduction of the Medicare/Medicaid bill under Johnson; the differences between integrated hospitals and segregated hospitals; changes he witnessed in the medical field over his 50-year career, particularly health care financing and modern technology; ethics - medical and general; how health care of African Americans has changed from his childhood to the present; and integration which has caused African Americans to spread out and disconnect. Clark also describes how he met his wife - Jeannine Clark, and talks about his children and grandchildren.
