The inspirational sermons of the old Negro preachers are set down as poetry in this collection - a classic for over forty years, frequently dramatized, recorded, and anthologized. 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.
