Progress and Pride

In a town where racial tension has often simmered near the surface, the selection of this year’s Yam King, Lloyd Price, was a big moment: the R&B artist and now sweet-potato product entrepreneur is the first African-American Yambilee King in the 63 years of the festival’s history. Among his most famous songs, Price penned “Personality,” which might well describe the attributes of the young woman on his arm, 19 year-old Meghin Frazier, the new Yambilee Queen.
Walk, personality
Talk, Personality
Smile, Personality
Charm, personality...
