Mrs. Moore, the Directors wife, purchased a tennis outfit with a tennis racket, and asked me to wear this and pose for
several photos meant to drum up donations. After the photos were taken, Mrs. Moore took the tennis outfit, the racket and
returned it get her money back. Many of the pictures taken at Youth City were staged to appear that kids were well treated
and taken care of. Clearly that was not the case. Since I didn't have any family, Mrs. Moore was appointed as my "auxillary
aunt," a job which she did not take very seriously.
Me at age 12 in Youth City
Living at Youth City provided little to smile about. Being a minority at Youth City, I was always treated very poorly.
