A look at the life of the underprivileged Afro-Americans of Tobytown, Maryland. Discusses their problems and attempts to help improve their situation. Includes interviews with county leaders who attempt to help the Tobytown community. This film has been digitized because it has a high level of Vinegar Syndrome (chemical deterioration). That condition will prevent any captured images from being 100% perfect. Our goal is to present the content of the film in a digital format that is as good and the least distracting as possible.
