I, TOO, SING AMERICA Three Centuries of African-American Poetry

by | Read by Ashley Bryan, Renee Joshua-Porter

Poetry & Drama • 2.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1998

This collection of 36 poems by 25 poets is a celebration in African-American voices. Arranged in chronological order, from Lucy Terry and Phillis Wheatley to Nikki Giovanni and Alice Walker, the work of each poet is preceded by a brief introduction that puts the life and work of each poet in a historical context. The program begins with a stirring gospel song that sets the scene for Ashley Bryan and Renee Joshua-Porter, who read with care, yet with exuberance and pride, capturing the heart and soul of these poets. A user-friendly package includes the names of the poets on each cassette and a full list of the poems on the inside of the cover insert.
