DAY 126 Etta Mae Williams photographed exclusively for the 100 Men Hall People Project (100MHPP). 

I started coming after school especially on Easter Monday, we saw Etta James, Irma Thomas, Fats Domino. We couldn’t wait till Easter Monday. When we got here, we wasn’t worried about going to get something to drink, we didn’t care if we got a soda, all we wanted to do was to be here. Seemed to me that everyone was dancing and if they weren’t they would be sitting on the bench and we would call them wallflowers.
