During Elvis Week there was an article written by a black lady that grew up listening to Elvis. It was a great article. She said she remembered hearing Elvis sing, "If your looking for trouble" during the opening of the 68 special and how she was awestruck. She said that she would go to the music store and just look at all the Elvis records. If she bought them she would be ridiculed at home and by her friends. Later she started buying the records, she didn't care what anybody thought.
It was funny how she ended the article. She said come on black people, come out of the Elvis closet now.
I don't know about any one else who was at Elvis week but I saw a good amount of black people this year. There was this one woman who had two sons that were dressed as Elvis and everyone was getting their pictures, they were cute and posing for their pictures. It was great to see maybe more people are less afraid to say they are Elvis fans.
