Famous quotes containing the word lou:

    Am I making myself clear, boys?
    Harvey Thew, U.S. screenwriter, John Bright, screenwriter, and Lowell Sherman. Lady Lou (Mae West)

    ... some of my people could have been left [in Africa] and are living there. And I can’t understand them and they don’t know me and I don’t know them because all we had was taken away from us. And I became kind of angry; I felt the anger of why this had to happen to us. We were so stripped and robbed of our background, we wind up with nothing.
    —Fannie Lou Hamer (1917–1977)

    Our foreparents were mostly brought from West Africa.... We were brought to America and our foreparents were sold; white people bought them; white people changed their names ... my maiden name is supposed to be Townsend, but really, what is my maiden name? What is my name?
    —Fannie Lou Hamer (1917–1977)
