Its veracity (many believed it to be a genuine autobiography) has made it one of the undisputed masterpieces of African American literature & established Johnson in the African American literary vanguard of the first half of the 20th century. He was also one of the central figures of the civil-rights struggle of his era, a tireless activist & longtime leader of the NAACP. Until now, however, his innovative & fascinating writings have never been gathered in a one-volume edition. Johnson¿s complex career spanned the worlds of diplomacy (as a U.S. consul in Venezuela & Nicaragua), politics (as secretary of the NAACP), journalism (as the founder of one newspaper & longtime editor of another), & musical theater (as lyricist for the Broadway song-writing team of Cole and Johnson Brothers). Writings presents a generous array of Johnson¿s essays which, with the early work of W.E.B. Du Bois, established the foundation of 20th-century African American literary criticism; a selection of his topical editorials from the New York Age; & an offering of his poems & lyrics, including God¿s Trombones (a brilliant verse homage to African American preaching), vaudeville songs, protest poems, & perhaps Johnson¿s most famous work, "Lift Every Voice and Sing," a stirring hymn often called the "Negro National Anthem." * James Weldon Johnson was born in Jacksonville, Florida, in 1871. Among the first to break through the barriers segregating his race, he was educated at Atlanta University & at Columbia & was the first black admitted to the Florida bar. He was also, for a time, a songwriter in New York, American consul in Venezuela & Nicaragua, executive secretary of the NAACP, & professor of creative literature at Fisk University, experiences recorded in his autobiography, "Along This Way". Other books by him include "Saint Peter Relates an Incident", "Black Manhattan", & "God's Trombones: Seven Negro Sermons in Verse". In addition to his own writing, Johnson was the editor of pioneering anthologies of black American poetry & spirituals. He died in 1938. * The Library of America is an award-winning, nonprofit program dedicated to publishing America's best & most significant writing in handsome, enduring volumes, featuring authoritative texts. Hailed as "the most important book-publishing project in the nation's history" (Newsweek), this acclaimed series is restoring America's literary heritage in "the finest-looking, longest-lasting edition ever made" (New Republic).
