Ballad of Vertical Integration

by Lee Ann Brown
Southern Cultures, Vol. 11, No. 2: Summer 2005

"For each and every one of us, a rainbow is the prize."

Civil Rights was brewing in a Charlotte coffee shop,
At an orange juice bar called Tanner’s
down near the main bus stop.
Cross of Trade & Tyron where the Cherokee once hunt,
Harry Golden cast his shining eye on a way to make his point.
