SUMMARY

The young James Weldon Johnson seemed to defy the limits placed on African Americans. He found success as a teacher, lawyer, diplomat, and writer. But Johnson grew increasing disturbed by the harsh treatment blacks suffered. From 1916 to the 1930s, Johnson traveled the country, speaking out for equal opportunities for blacks. He worked to rapidly expand the membership of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and became the first black to serve as the NAACP's executive secretary. All his life, Johnson believed in the power of words. It is fitting that today he is best known as a poetstatesman and the author of the words to "Lift Every Voice and Sing."
