This chapter focuses on Nina's birthday, which fell in the middle of a two-week engagement at Chicago's Sutherland Hotel. “I'm really quite content,” she told the Chicago Defender in one of two feature stories promoting the date. “I have a wonderful husband and a marvelous baby . . . She's very pudgy and she has black curly hair. She has an atrocious temper if she's not fed on time, but, all in all, she's a joy.” Frances, Nina's younger sister, had come on the road to help—they had just played the Sir John Hotel in Miami and a concert in Atlanta. Perhaps as a present to Nina, Andy booked the family into a new motel in Hyde Park with a beautiful view of Lake Michigan. The place was appropriately called “50th on the Lake,” noteworthy because it accepted black guests.
