'Yam yam yam yam, yam yam yam ...'
Bojangles Robinson is from right here in Richmond, he was an amazing man: started dancing at age six, and was only seen by white audiences after he was in his fifties. Invented stair dancing, and owned the Negro League Yankees. We have a lovely statue of him at the corner where he went to City Hall and bought a traffic light near a park where he saw poor kids trying to cross the street.
Happy Thanksgiving to y'all as well.
I suspect, that like McDonalds, Trick or Treat, and High School Musical, we will end up celebrating it too.
