Thanks for the comments. But, as Carey pointed it out, I put my foot in my mouth, now I'm going to have to follow through with it. So, after Seed, its me and DuBois. Besides, I have an itchin' to read the Reconsidering The Souls of Black Folk book, which means I have to read The Souls first. It's all good.
Cynique: I'm sorry but your suggestion for the proper name for Stagger Lee is whacked. First, all that I'm able to find is the song lyrics along with which artist recorded the best version of the song. Which it should because that's the title of the song. Now, that don't tell me if Stagger Lee is really Stagger Lee or Stagolee or Stackolee -- the folklore. If Stagolee was a real person, where he's from, or anything.
Chris: Thanks for the info on Stagolee or Stackolee. I appreciate it and find it interesting.
Carey: No you didn't call Whoopi ugly. Come on Carey now, this is me, you ain't trying to tell me that there is no such thing as MISCASTING are you? *eyebrow raised* You know as well as I do, they would have made Celie pretty, and Mr. not as mean as he was written. Actually, Danny Glover played him kind of nice. And if truth be told, Danny Glover didn't look anything like the Mr. in the book. Adolf Ceasar looked more like the character Mr. as Walker wrote him.
