Fire in my bones : transcendence and the Holy Spirit in African American gospel by Glenn Hinson( )

5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A key feature of African American performance is the layering of performative voices and the constant shifting of performative focus. To capture this layering, Hinson demonstrates how all the parts of the gospel program work together to shape a single whole, joining speech and song, performer and audience, testimony, prayer, preaching, and singing into a seamless and multifaceted service of worship. Personal stories ground the discussion at every turn, while experiential testimony fuels the unfolding arguments. Fire in My Bones is an original exploration of experience and belief in a community of African American Christians, but it is also an exploration of African American aesthetics, the study of belief, and the ethnographic enterprise.--provided by publisher

Margaret Walker's "For my people" : a tribute by Roland L Freeman( Book )

3 editions published in 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Half a century ago a young woman published a poem that was destined to reverberate through American life. Here that poem is reprinted with thirty-eight stunning photographs that celebrate it. "For My People" is a resounding catalog of black history, a clarion that refutes the affliction of humiliation, an indelible record of noble accomplishments. Since 1942 this enduring paean to black America has remained an everlasting appeal against racial oppression. "I wrote most of that poem," Margaret Walker says, "in fifteen minutes on a typewriter. I think it was just after my twenty-second birthday, and I felt it was my whole life gushing out - as I had felt about my people all my life." Since that time the astonishing young poet whose voice rose in cadences that praise and honor black America has never ceased to stir minds and hearts to action with her credos. She became indeed the renowned poet, novelist, lecturer, teacher, and sage Margaret Walker Alexander. In commemoration of "For My People," her first publication, and in tribute to her richly productive life, the acclaimed photographer Roland L. Freeman has joined a photo essay to Margaret Walker's poem. "I selected photographs that call to mind the special human elements evoked by Walker, so basic to everyday life, and yet not often celebrated, elements which unravel the real beauty and the tenacity for life of African-American people." With this marvelous collaboration both Walker and Freeman stimulate rejoicing for the spirit of the artist who perceives and depicts the rich and vital culture of black America. In this jubilee year of a momentous poem, "For My People" continues to resound in the hearts of African-Americans and for all who love human freedom

"Over a one-year period from July 1994 to July 1995, staff from arts and education programs in three culturally defined and relatively isolated sites worked with young people to produce a body of work inspired by themes selected to demonstrate how culture shows itself in people's lives. Each of the sites--Mississipi Cultural Crossroads (MCC): Port Gibson, Mississippii; Old Pascua Youth Artists (OPYA): Tucson, Arizona; and Weybridge Elementary School (WES): Weybridge, Vermont-- brought notable experience using the arts to work with young people, primarily African American in Mississippi, Native American in Arizona, and rural White in Vermont."--Page 9
