Mr. Rivets and His Adoring Fans

This 4 min. video clip was posted on YouTube in May 2023. It shows Alan and Mr. Rivets (Joe Early) in a crowd of children. Note the two children in wheelchairs at the front of the crowd and the integrated two kids drawing in the dirt. Even for Philadelphia, which had been a haven for escaped slaves in the 19th century, this was a bold choice for the times.
