AUTHOR

Johnson, James Weldon, Douglas, Aaron, Falls, C. B.

SUMMARY

The inspirational sermons of the old Negro preachers are set down as poetry in this collection -- a classic for more than forty years, frequently dramatized, recorded, and anthologized. Mr. Johnson tells in his preface of hearing these same themes treated by famous preachers in his youth; some of the sermons are still current, and like the spirituals they have taken a significant place in black folk art. In transmuting their essence into original and moving poetry, the author has also ensured the survival of a great oral tradition. Book jacket.Johnson, James Weldon is the author of 'God's Trombones Seven Negro Sermons in Verse', published 1990 under ISBN 9780140184037 and ISBN 0140184031.
