‘Arrangement in Black and White’ by Dorothy Parker

It’s worth remembering that Dorothy Parker left her estate to Martin Luther King Jr, whom she’d never met, with the proviso that, should anything happen to him, she’d like it turned over to the NAACP. Knowing that, read this scathing story (and clock when it was written).

First published in The New Yorker in 1927, available in their archives and also here.
