8th Grade General Music
When Quincy was about 7 years old, his mother was admitted into a mental institution. Finding it hard to take care of two small boys alone, Quincy’s father took the boys to live with his mother, Susan Jones, an ex-slave who lived in Louisville. After about a year, Quincy’s father returned for them and together they went back to Chicago.
After being in Chicago for only a short time, Quincy’s father took the boys and rushed off to Bremerton, Washington where they remained. When their father left for work everyday, the boys were left to fend for themselves. Some days, a bag cough drops was the only thing they had to eat; and they made the most of it.
