Black history facts I learned in AA Lit: Nella Larsen got a Guggenheim fellowship. William Attaway wrote The Banana Boat Song(Day Oh). Gwendolyn Brooks earned a Pulitzer Prize and was generally awesome. Unrelated to black history: Both of Lil Jon's parents are professors. Dave Chappelle's mother helped set up a black studies department.
