Artist’s comments

"Brown skins! Here come your Brownyskin Man! They come off the hog, They come off his head, They come off the hog Right after he's dead!"

Walking tall, long strides the Brownyskin Man has hundreds of little paper bundles filled with fried pork rinds tied around his waist, his arms, his back. Sometimes he pushes a red-and-white cart. "Now Brownyskins, put your finger in the air! The Brownyskin Man will be right there!"

-Aminah Robinson, A Street Called Home

(Symphonic Poem p. 118)
