|Lincoln Agrippa Daily, known on the 1920s Marseilles waterfront as “Banjo,” prowls the rough waterfront bistros with his drifter friends, drinking, looking for women, playing music, fighting, loving, and talking - about their homes in Africa, the West Indies, or the american South and about being black.|
From the Publisher:
A wandering Black longshoreman searches for racial and individual identity amid the fugitives who congregate in the waterfront slums of Marseilles.
McKay immigrated to the United States from Jamaica in 1912 and was an important figure in the Harlem Renaissance. He became a U.S. citizen, then an expatriate in 1936, finally returning to the U.S. shortly before he died, in 1948.
