quote of the day-----goodreads
If a man is not faithful to his own individuality, he cannot be loyal to anything.
Jamaican poet and novelist Claude McKay (born September 15, 1889) emerged as a powerful voice of the Harlem Renaissance with the publication of two volumes of poetry, Spring in New Hampshire and Harlem Shadows, and the novel Home to Harlem. He not only experienced life in New York, but also in the Soviet Union, France, Spain, and Morocco. Ultimately he returned to America, becoming a U.S. citizen in 1940.
