Cover to Cover with Jack Foley - April 6, 2005

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.
