Notes / Reviews
Subtitled An African American Aural History, this 2001 2-CD release is an ambitious and colossal collection! These 59 tracks document oral and literary traditions from an unparalleled assembly of activists and illuminaries in music, oratory, poetry, and prose: Bernice Johnson Reagon, Toshi Reagon, Angela Davis, Langston Hughes, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Nikki Giovanni, Jayne Cortez, Margaret Walker, Elizabeth Cotten, Paul Robeson, Gwendolyn Brooks, Sonia Sanchez, Bobbie Seale, Big Bill Broonzy, Sonny Terry & Brownie McGee, Muddy Waters, and many many more. Tracks alternate between musical and spoken, creating a most engaging aural documentary. Much of the material is culled from the Folkways Records archive; 40-page booklet included.
