Mayme Johnson Refutes Frank Lucas’
“American Gangster” Tales
At age 93, Mayme Johnson has done a lot of living. But as the widow of Ellsworth “Bumpy” Johnson, the original American gangster, who ruled Harlem in the early 20th century, Mayme Johnson has done more living than most! In “Harlem Godfather: The Rap on My Husband, Ellsworth “Bumpy” Johnson,” (www.HarlemGodfather.com) to be released by Oshun Publishing Company in February 2008, Johnson sets the record straight once and for all. Coauthored with Essence Magazine bestselling author, Karen E. Quinones Miller, the novel is not only her an account of her life married to the Black mafia boss, but also a vivid recollection of Harlem in its heyday.
