Literary Face Mask - Paul Laurence Dunbar
Paul Laurence Dunbar, poet, novelist and playwright, was born on June 27, 1872 to freed slaves from Kentucky. He coined the phrase "I know why the caged bird sings" in his poem Sympathy, which later helped inspire Maya Angelou's novel. The verse on this mask come from Dunbar's poem "We wear the Mask."
