Presentations given as part of the Two-Day CACOA [Creative Arts Center for Older Adults] Learn-In for All Those Involved with Arts and Aging. The presentations in this recording relate to arts and creative practices of elderly individuals in a variety of community group settings. The recording begins in the middle of a poet speaking and reading from her work; the poet is followed by Theodore "Teddy" Gunn, director of Brooklyn's Bedford-Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation Art and Culture Center, who introduces a family of artists. Next up is an occupational therapist and resident of the Morningside House Nursing Home in the Bronx. The following speaker represents Elder Craftsman magazine. The next presentation is by an individual who indicates he is an art teacher and teacher of arts educators--he asks participants to submit their comments on the program. This speaker is followed by Thelma "Butterfly" McQueen, who discusses life after her role as Prissy in the film, Gone with the Wind. The recording ends while McQueen is taking questions from participants.
