Cat Walks Alone (letter two)

Dear Friend:

Thank you for your suggestion about the descriptive word for the baby in “Cat Walks Alone.” I’m going to follow your lead and substitute the word “brown” or something implying soft and brown. Glad you liked the play.

In staying with Kipling’s original language, that little “white assumption” slipped my notice. Thanks again.

Cat Walks Alone (letter)

Dear Editor:

I just read the wonderful play, “Cat Walks Alone” in the “library” on your website. I loved it. Except for one word, I thought it was perfect. That the color of the baby read as “pink” concerned me. Since we all originally came from Africa, shouldn’t the baby be brown? That way, the play would be more universal, instead of Euro-centered. Thank you for your attention.
