Joe Leavenworth - Native Son
I spent ten years in the south, hopping from one antebellum town to another. After growing up in the north and maturing as an adult in the south, it is sometimes very difficult for me to adhere to one social identity over another. Am I a southerner or a damn yankee? Im never too sure. Only after my recent escape from the post Confederate nation, was I able to see the tenderness of the landscape that I had been living in.
