Quote Of The Day

"My family lived on Park Avenue, just above the uptown railroad. The poverty of my childhood differed from the poverty of today [this was written in 1980] in that the TV set was not sitting in front of our faces, forcing us to make unbearable comparisons between the room we were sitting in and the rooms we were watching, neither were we endlessly being told what to wear and drink and buy." -James Baldwin (From, "Baldwin's Harlem" By: Herb Boyd)
