Summary
"Lincoln 'Banjo' Daily doesn't see what slavery has to do with music. He plays the banjo because he likes to. He is just one of a colony of drifters who have settled on the tough waterfront of Marseilles in the 1920s. They panhandle by day, and at night do the rounds of the brawling bistros. They drink, look for women, dance, play music, make love and fight, and they talk about their homes in Senegal, the Caribbean and the United States: about Garvey's 'back-to-Africa' movement, and about being black. A journey which leads some of them to discovering their African roots and a sense of belonging to a race 'weighed, tested and poised in the universal scheme'."--BOOK JACKET
