Tennie Russell

Following high school graduation Russell got a job at an army hospital in Arizona. There a fellow said to her “you’re a hillbilly [but] you don’t act like what I thought a hillbilly would…and I said, well Joe you are from The Bronx and not what I thought the people from The Bronx were like…we learned we were just people.” [00:16:01]
