The Black Aged: A Diverse Population is an engaging eleven minute videotape documenting various lifestyles of the black elderly in Southern California. Gina Webster skillfully dispells [dispels] the " all black aged are alike" myth as she highlights the current visions and lives of five octogenarians. From immigrant, laborer, writer, missionary, to social worker, each life is as varied as human experiences can be. Each individual carries a vivid past, an enriching present, and an optimistic future.
