September 26, 2014, Friday afternoon -- Reading Paule Marshall

Walking down 16th Street on a sunny day
He is reading The Chosen Place, The Timeless People, by Paule Marshall.  He is reading it because it is the favorite book of a Black Studies critic who he respects.  (I don't remember the name of the critic -- I didn't have my pen handy.) 

His own favorite book is In the Break: The Aesthetics of the Black Radical Tradition, by Fred Moten.
