As a satirist, Campbell wrote the book to poke fun at the underlying prejudice often portrayed about African-Americans in the media.
"...It is up to me to examine those images, poke and prod them, take my incisive “wit” and twisted “humor” and slap them up, flip them, and rub them down, to slice them open and start pulling until the chitlins come pouring out into the light of day," he wrote.

Green Man Art Reception
Later Sunday night at the New Deal meet the artists of the Green Man art exhibit at a reception from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
The theme of the Green Man exhibit is "finding common ground in the gardens of life."
The works range from paper constructions by students to paintings, drawings, and photographs by local artists. They also include a collaborative mosaic and more—giving you a peek into the diversity of the artists' connections with nature. Patrons can take some of the green home with them, as most of the artists works are for sale by the artists.
The exhibit will be on display at New Deal Cafe until July 2.
