Summary:Shows a black family whose husband/father works as a migrant laborer from Florida to New York. The narrator describes how they wash their hands before eating and wash their bodies and clothes regularly using clean water, and that they make sure to drink and use only clean water in preparing meals. This helps ensure that they remain healthy. This film has been digitized because it has a high level of Vinegar Syndrome (chemical deterioration). That condition will prevent any captured images from being 100% perfect. Our goal is to present the content of the film in a digital format that is as good and the least distracting as possible.
