T. Ray Owens Quotes

Two of the best book quotes from T. Ray Owens
  1. #1
    ″‘Good riddance,’ he said, and moved toward the door. We had to open up our little wall of women to let him through.”
  2. #2
    “T. Ray did not think colored women were smart. Since I want to tell the whole truth, which means the worst parts, I thought they could be smart, but not as smart as me, me being white. Lying on the cot in the honey house, though, all I could think was August is so intelligent, so cultured, and I was surprised by this. That’s what let me know I had some prejudice buried inside me.”
