Description - The Spirituals and the Blues by James H. Cone

Cone explores two classic aspects of African-American culture--the spirituals and the blues. He tells the captivating story of how slaves and the children of slaves used this music to affirm their essential humanity in the face of oppression. The blues are shown to be a "this-worldly" expression of cultural and political rebellion. The spirituals tell about the "attempt to carve out a significant existence in a very trying situation."

Buy The Spirituals and the Blues by James H. Cone from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
