Tom Wolfe didn't give it in EKAT. McNally didn't give it. Lesh didn't give it. I can't find a single scholar/dissertator in the last fifteen years who's given it.
What gives? Who is (was?) Big Nig? And why is he anonymous behind this moniker of blackness, Beatness, bohemianess, and all other good things brought to us by the Letter B?
Hipstorical minds want to know... Thanks for any help.
not very politically correct on the subject of Big Nig
Yup. Danke. I've been to that site before. And it's handy the way the excerpts from everywhere are included.
But "PC" isn't the goal / my objective. It was 1965 after all, right? "Black Power" didn't really go out as a rallying cry in the enough-is-enough civil righteousness anger until June of 1966, and took a while to grow in public consciousness.
My point is... what's our infamous host's actual, ya know, human race name? His blackness is a separate aspect of that identity.
