Civil Rights

A writer-editor-teacher’s quote of the week #64

“Scatology and profanity in all its forms were officially forbidden, of course, but ‘cursing’ was a badge of toughness and looming manhood, and all of us used it with exuberant defiance around each other.”

– from the chapter “Big Boy” in Son of the Rough South: An Uncivil Memoir by Karl Fleming
