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

Road
(1932), Brown established himself as one of the two major folk poets
of the Harlem Renaissance. His only rival was Langston Hughes.
