To the editor:
I want to thank readers for letters about costumes worn during the premiere of “The Help.” I organized the party, and I want to explain why.
After reading this story and discussing it, I was amazed at how many could relate to it.
One lady who was raised during the time said to me, “I was raised by a black lady. She was family to me. And when she hugged me, I really felt love. I felt safe. There was nothing like it.”
