Quote of the Day

znhI am not tragically colored. There is no great sorrow dammed up in my
soul, nor lurking behind my eyes. . . . Even in the helter-skelter skirmish
that is my life, I have seen that the world is to the strong regardless of a
little pigmentation more or less. No, I do not weep at the world—I am too busy
sharpening my oyster knife. – Zora Neale Hurston (1901?-1960) “How it Feels to Be Colored Me” (1928)
