Lloyd Richards: Well, it really illustrates why I am in the theater, and the kind of thing that keeps you going. It happened when we were doing Raisin in the Sun. We were in Philadelphia. We had opened without anyone really being conscious that we were there. The third day, or the fourth, we began to really have some lines at the box office. I happened to be standing in the lobby, and there was a very small, thin black woman standing in line, and she had a shopping bag. I know what those shopping bags are about. My mother used to carry one. They were the badge of the housekeepers. I used to watch it on Grand River, when I went to school. Grand River (Avenue) was a major artery in Detroit. The buses and streetcars went downtown, and the buses went uptown. In the morning when you approached a corner, you saw the buses going downtown, and they were filled with white persons on their way downtown. On the other side of the street, there was a different group. There was a group of black women, getting on the buses, going out into the suburbs to clean their house or take care of their houses while they went downtown. And it would reverse in the evening. Well, this was obviously one of those women. She got up to the ticket booth, she asked for a ticket, and she put up a dollar. The ticket man told her that will be $4.80. She said, “Four dollars and eighty cents?” Yes. She said, “Why is it $4.80? I can see Sidney Poitier around the corner for 95 cents.” She was obviously referring to the movies. Well, it’s $4.80 here. So she took her $4.80, which I knew was hard earned, she put it out, got her ticket and she started to go into the theater. The door was locked, and she said, “I can’t get in.” The ticket man said, “You have to come back tonight at 8:30. There is only one show in the evening, it’s at 8:30.” So she started to leave, and I stopped her, and I asked her, “Why are you paying $4.80 and coming back tonight to see Sidney Poitier, who you can see around the corner for 95 cents?” And she said, “Well, the word is going around in my neighborhood that there is something going on down here that concerns me, and I had to come find out what it was about.”
