Quote of the Day

Mommy had a wonderful library.  Richard Wright, Langston Hughes, Paul Laurence Dunbar ... but she also read trashy books that she kept in the back of her closet.  I remember a nun once saying to me that Black Boy by Richard Wright was a bad book.  I knew better but I thank her for letting me know just because you are grown and a nun you don't necessarily know what is a good from a bad book.

-- Nikki Giovanni
