Scope and Contents
Reginald 'Lucky' Luckett, also known as Reggie, and Beverly Lindsay-Johnson discussed line dance, particularly as related to African culture and religion; song writers as prophets of their day; and how girls and boys, and women and men related to each other in the 1960s and the 1990s in regards to dancing and dating. Luckett spoke about how he developed social skills as a result of being a part of Teenarama, his fascination with and learning about the production of the show, his leadership role of screening the teenagers before they entered the studio prior to the taping of the show, the regular dancers on the show, and working with host Bob King. The interview was part of the research for the documentary 'Dance Party: The Teenarama Story.'
