No, Kitty, I didn't read, The Children of Ham but I wasn't going to send my porkchop looking, cornfeed daughter to NY. Nope didn't read about the children of ham but I lived with a fat turkey that was just waiting to be plucked.

I did however read Chester Himes's Cotton Comes To Harlem and Run Man Run and I could just see my daughter, with her big sassy mouth, telling a drunk white policemen to blow it out of his ass.

It's interesting that you speak of the Harlem Renaissance period. When I think of that period I think of Langston Hughes. When Langston Hughes is mentioned I can assume many think of his poems, plays, or novels. I think of Mr. Simple. I call him Mr. Simple out of respect because although he was an uneducated man, his wisdom was deep. Simple cracked me up and made me think.
