Book Excerpts

“Dad, what’s going on? Who is this stranger and why am I being left alone with her?”

“It made Black people feel ashamed. So many wanted to be anything but those images sung and joked about. They did what they could to separate themselves from anything remotely similar to a shucking and jiving watermelon Negro.”

What happened with the Solar Calendar was real, but it was old. There was no reason for me to know all that stuff. I didn’t even know why I researched anything else after I used it. I didn’t even know why I was so mad.
