Synopsis
On April 3rd, 1968 Memphis was a hot bed of political emotions.  Dr. King was in town. The sanitation workers were on strike.  And here is where we find "Mr. John" working in the Sears-Roebuck Crosstown Arts Building as an elevator operator.  As he says, "Goodbye" to the last of the customers he thinks on his childhood. Watching his father work hard in the fields helped form his work ethic so that now he is working in one of the most prestigious stores in the South.  But he is acutely aware of his role as a young African American man in 1968 Memphis.  Spend some time with "Mr. John" and feel some "gratitude" for being true to yourself and kind to others.
