“Hurt Into Poetry: On Poetry and Greece”By Stephanos Papadopoulos
"Is that what I want on my gravestone: Here lies an African American? I’m divided. I want to be black, to know black, to luxuriate in whatever I may be calling blackness at any particular time — but to do so in order to come out the other side, to experience a humanity that is neither colorless nor reducible to color. Bach and James Brown. Sushi and fried catfish."
— Henry Louis Gates, Jr., Colored People: A Memoir
