Youtube Videos of Bernard Purdie, the World’s Most Recorded Drummer and the First African Amercian to Integrate Schools in Cecil County

As some of you may recall, I wrote a post about Bernard Purdie on this blog in October (Click here to see it).  To refresh your memory, Bernard Purdie was the first African American to integrate a school in Cecil County.  He graduated from Elkton High School in 1960 after getting most of his education at the George Washington Carver School. 

While looking around on the website everyone knows, You Tube, I came across several videos of Mr. Purdie.  I thought it would be a good idea to post some them on here.   Take a look…
