Hello Afrigeneas Writers:
Chester Bomar Himes, African-American novelist, was born in Jefferson City, Missouri in 1909 and died in 1984 in Moraira, Spain. Hailed as a literary genius, Himes struggled most of his life. In his later years his detective novels finally brought him recognition and financial independence. Two of his popular novels were "If He Hollers, Let Him Go", and "Lonely Crusade."
A website dedicated to his life is included below.
