Title: Style Show at Negro Church
Description: Up to the 2:40 mark, recording continues discussion from e_utfc_0105. Then the recording proceeds to the style show, recorded a the Friendly Will Baptist Church. The original recording of the show is badly distorted, apparently from inconstant recording speeds. The show begins with 4 minutes of piano music, then a choir hymn and a prayer asking for a blessing for the program. The girls of the show begin to parade to the piano, applause is heard, and prizes awarded. Songs and recitations end the show.
