A tolerant racial atmosphere in White Stocking

Thomas and Elberta Hudson describe the racial climate of White Stocking and how the hurricane affected it. Thomas thinks that people in White Stocking are more tolerant than they were in his hometown in Maryland, and Elberta believes that Floyd brought different racial groups closer together as they struggled to rebuild their community. "We didn't usually come together," she says, but remembers the white churches that helped feed the black community.
