  • 9. Who is Simple ?
    • “ I cannot truthfully state, as some novelists do at the beginning of there books, that these stories are about “nobody living or dead”. The facts are that these tales are about a great many people although they are stories about no specific persons as such. But it is impossible to live in Harlem and not know at least a hundred Simples, fifty Joyces, twenty five Zaritas, a number of Boyds, and several cousin Minnies or reasonable facsimiles thereof”.
    • This is how Langston Hughes describes Jesse B Simple, a character that he wrote about for many years. Simple might be considered an Everyman for black Americans. Click for sample of Jesse B Simple article
    Hughes, Langston. The Best of Simple . New York: Hill and Wang, 1990.
