"In their first broadcast interview, Sarah and Elizabeth Delany tell Charles Kuralt about their remarkable lives. The two sisters moved from North Carolina to Harlem and have served the community ever since. They are daughters of a man born into slavery, who themselves lived through Jim Crow, through the Harlem renaissance, and through the civil rights movement. The Delany sisters understand a great deal about racism, about family and about love. ... Elizabeth is 102 years old, Sarah is 104. They have lived together for over one hundred years, never having married. In 1920, Sarah graduated from Teacher's College at Columbia University and got a job at an all white New York City High School by intentionally not showing up for a job interview. Elizabeth graduated three years later and became the second black woman licensed to practice dentistry in the state of New York."--1993 Peabody Awards entry form excerpt. The Delaney sisters share a day in their lives with Charles Kuralt as they briefly discuss their family and why they chose not to marry. They also discuss their views on race relations in America.
