Arnett Cobb interview
- Main contributor
Arnett Cobb plays "Down by the Riverside." He describes the house (now the Groovey Grill) he is being interviewed in. When he was a child, his mother was in domestic service in the home, and he would come visit for special occasions. He states that he would have never imagined that mansion would eventually be owned by a Black family.
