What a fantastic little video I watched it twice and it made me smile each time. Great to see the lady herself so immersed in the footage and gradually remembering long forgotten anecdotes from back in the day.
Very heart warming.

I watched it to. Very heart-warming! It's quite possible that she might not have seen all of these films. These might have been filmed for "white" audiences and shown at theaters back then that would only allow white people. It's a sad fact of history, but it's true.
There were also black only movie theaters, (I saw a very good documentary about the history of black films and movie theaters on PBS), and if these weren't distributed to black only movie theaters, than it is totally possible that she really didn't see these.
At any rate, those visits sure made that 102 year old ladies day!
