Best of Half of Baltimore
Hall of Fame
As an Afrocentric feminist who speaks truth that is beyond white power, I want to acknowledge the brilliant mind of Wiley Hall III.
It is a shame that Wiley Hall does not get huge awards for his work. A nice billboard would do. I read his column "Lend Least" (Urban Rhythms, July 18) and learned a lot. I know that Wiley Hall is one smart man and I sincerely appreciate his wisdom. He makes all black people feel good about his intelligence and common sense.
With libraries closing in our black communities, I hope we will get another Wiley Hall in the future. Right now, the chances look slim.
You white folks at City Paper should let Wiley Hall know his head is not a hat rack, or a place to pat when he's done a good job.
