Product Description
by James Weldon Johnson

The inspirational sermons of the old Negro preachers are set down as poetry in this collection--a classic for more than 40 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.
