Can you help identify a short story read on NPR on or around x-mas day 2007, about a poor white family helping out a poor black family, probably out west, probably in the 1930s?

One particular scene involved something like this: a white father coming back from town with 2 turkeys and fruit or candy, from a church or food pantry, and giving one turkey to a black man, who had assumed black folks were not invited to the giveaway. Ths story may have been told from the point of view of a child.

I've searched the NPR site and have not been able to track it down. Thanks!

Sounds like a StoryCorps piece. Have you tried searching in that section?
