Article "Famous Negro Quartet Gives Interview Here"

Description

This article discusses the concert performance that an all-black, male quartet gave for the Richmond community at City Auditorium. and the interview that followed. The quartet known as the Four Mills Brothers "created a new kind of harmony and human orchestrations" as they made their first public appearance in Richmond for an audience of 3,500 people. The quartet consisted of John Mills, Herbert Mills, Donald Mills, and Harry Mills. The author of this article was able to get an interview with everyone except for Harry, as there was a large group of high school girls swarming around the group in hopes of getting autographs. The interview asked how the brothers liked the city, the people in the city, and if they hoped to come back to Richmond to perform again. The brothers said that they liked the city and the people and hoped to return.
