Book Description HTML

The music of the American negro, the fresh and spontaneous expression of a good and care-free heart, has long been one of the most pleasing features of American life. It is human nature in its first vocal garb—original and unique, often humorous and always true to the sentiment of the singer. If there ever was an illustration of the close relationship between language and thought, it is this. What is true of the melodies of the negro as developed in the simple existence on the plantation is also true of that other form of singing, verse-making.
