The Only Piano in the Projects

The Only Piano in the Projects

Lawrence and Elgin Lightfoot describe how their family ended up with a piano while living in East Lake Meadows. "We were the only people in the projects with a piano. The neighbor would have parties and play records all night, and since the walls were so thin, I would play along with the records. I learned to play a lot of songs off her music."
