The Glory of Negro History

The Glory of Negro History

In this collection of prose and song, Langston Hughes narrates the history of the African-American people. Beginning with the struggles associated with slavery and punctuated with African chants and freedom songs sung by Brownie McGhee, Hilda Haynes and Leadbelly, Hughes imparts the glory and triumphs of African-Americans, which include the accomplishments of Booker T. Washington and George Washington Carver, the founding of the NAACP, the sporting legends Jackie Robinson and Joe Louis and the music of William Grant and Ella Fitzgerald.
