Home health care worker Francis Adams, 71, with portraits of his grandmother Birdilla Adams and Malcolm X, in his Washington, PA., apartment on Monday, March 29, 2021. Adams says his grandparents, and the Civil Rights Movement, have greatly impacted his life. His grandfather Sell Adams was a coal miner and Birdella Adams worked as a house cleaner — and both were very giving people. “Even today, when I think about them, it brings emotion,” he said. “I don’t know if I could be the man that my grandfather was. I remember he was gong to coal mines at 7 o’clock in the morning, coming out at 8 at night, covered in soot. And he would always still give first.” (Steve Mellon/Post-Gazette)
