Negro Knights of Africa

[Negro Knights of Africa]
by Nathan Lamm

In Ben Hecht's "Gaily, Gaily," a collection of short stories about his days in Chicago, 1910-1915, he describes the "Negro Knights of Africa[n Freedom]," a Garvey-like group, with, natch, a flag. It's blue, with a wide black stripe across its middle. Of course, a lot of this book is fictional, but with actual events underlying it. This story is "The Negress," found in the collection "Gaily, Gaily" (1963). (Originally published as "Queen Dido" in Playboy magazine, 1962.)
