Knock Me a Kiss is a fictional account inspired by the actual events surrounding the 1928 marriage of W.E.B. Du Bois’s daughter Yolande to one of Harlem’s great poets, Countee Cullen. The marriage marked the height of the Harlem Renaissance and was viewed as the perfect union of Negro talent and beauty.

“In one blistering scene after another, with dialogue that is alternately highly poetic, down-and-dirty, eerily disturbing and fiercely authoritarian, Smith exposes the lies and the blazing truths that animate his characters.” -Chicago Sun Times
