Product description

James Weldon Johnson was a leading figure of the Harlem Renaissance, and one of the most revered African Americans of all time, whose life demonstrated the full spectrum of struggle and success. In "God's Trombones," one of his most celebrated works, inspirational sermons of African American preachers are reimagined as poetry, reverberating with the musicality and splendid eloquence of the spirituals. This classic collection includes ?Listen Lord?A Prayer, ? ?The Creation, ? ?The Prodigal Son, ? ?Go Down Death?A Funeral Sermon, ? ?Noah Built the Ark, ? ?The Crucifixion, ? ?Let My People Go, ? and ?The Judgment Day.?
