it means that you embrace the entire black community regardless of the hue,
whether somebody is very light and could pass for possibly
white or someone is very dark.

the way the larger white community divides itself,
over class issues.
And that race is no longer the bond that it once was.

the way in which you could overcome that was through
the way in which you presented yourself with your clothing.

Many of the master chefs in the South,
both the upper South as well as the deep South,
were blacks and many of those people came here to Washington,

Very, very few of them have survived.
But they certainly were very prominent.

owners but we do not have a philosopher of black entrepreneurship,
and that's what Washington was.

one's sense of inherent worth.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Is the babe young? When I behold it,
it seems more venerable than the oldest man.
