Going South: Corey's Soul Chicken in Milan

CoreyMcCathernEalyMaysArtworks presents the narratives of Paris-based expatriate artist Ealy Mays along with forceful reminders of literary and artistic contribution of African American expatriates in Paris, other parts of Europe, and around the world (where noted).  In doing, we also take the time to note the contribution of others to the cultural expansion and legacies of African Americans abroad, which heralds a landmark, a first, or a fresh new idea.

When Warrant Officer LEROY HAYNES took up to study on the GI bill in France, no one could have imagined the history in the making.  Haynes who once described himself as “Kentucky-born, Chicago-bred and Parisian by choice”, opened a restaurant with a modestly priced menu offering good old-fashioned southern cooking and aptly southern folksy names such as “Ma Sutton’s Southern fried chicken”, “Uncle Jason’s barbecued pigs’ feet”, “Sister Lena’s barbecued spare ribs”, and “Kentucky oysters” (good ole chitterlings).
