I'm looking for a woman of color whose name is sarah
She is said to reside in one of these houses
She's here. She's living in our attic
Will you tell her, please that mr. Coalhouse walker jr.
Desires to speak with her?
Certainly. Please wait here
This is sarah's baby. You want a cookie?
Sarah, you have a caller. A mr. Walker. Will you come
Down to the kitchen?
No ma'am. Send him away, please.
Well, that's the most words you've spoken since you've
Sarah is unable to see you. Good day
Thank you ma'am. Tell her i'll come back next sunday
Such was the coming of the colored man in the car
To broadview avenue.
Each sunday, he'd come driving
Curtains would part
Neighbours would peek
I'm sorry, mr. Walker
Sarah still will not receive you
Will you see that she gets these flowers, ma'am?
Week after week!
And aftyer weeks of sundays.
Sending him off seemed a crime...
Mr. Walker, it must be a long drive for you. Perhaps
You would like a cup of tea before you go?
This piano is badly in need of a tuning
Oh yes. We are terrible about that
Do you know any coon songs?
Coon songs are made for minstrel shows. White men
Sing them in blackface. This is called ragtime.
