Interview Summary

Talbert talks about his life in Cadentown, a majority black community just outside of Lexington, Kentucky. He explains what it was like living there without electricity or running water, and how he walked 8 miles to his one-room school. Talbert talks about his family and its deep Kentucky roots, all the way back to his relatives who were slaves. He explains how the community worked and how tight knit it was despite there being a rivalry between the two churches. Talbert finishes by describing the stores in Cadentown, including what they looked like, how they smelled, and who was in them.
