A presentation of the work, read by the author, of African-American folk
poet Sterling A. Brown (1901-1989). Brown’s poetry was described by James
Weldon
Johnson as having achieved in literature "the common, racy, living speech
of
the Negro." On the basis of his first volume of verse, "Southern Road"
(1932), Brown established himself as one of the two major folk poets of
the Harlem
Renaissance. His only rival was Langston Hughes.
