by Zora Neale

the postcolonial lens.
“Joe Starks was the name, yeah Joe Starks from in and through
Georgy. Been workin’ for white folks all his life. Saved up some
money – round three hundred dollars, yes indeed, right here in his
pocket. Kept hearin’ ‘bout them buildin’ a new state down heah in
Floridy and sort of wanted to come. But he was makin’ money
where he was. But when he heard all about ‘em makin’ a town all
outa colored folks, he knowed dat was de place he wanted to be.
He had always wanted to be a big voice, but de white folks had all
de sayso where he come from and everywhere else, exceptin’ de
place dat colored folks was buildin’ theirselves. Dat was right too.
De man dat built things oughta boss it. Let colored folks build
thing too if dey wants to crow over somethin.”
