On My Journey Now: Looking at African-American History Through the Spirituals
Ever since she was a little girl attending three different churches, poet Nikki Giovanni has loved the spirituals. Now, with the passion of a poet and the knowledge of a historian, she paints compelling portraits of the lives of her ancestors through the words of songs such as "Go Down, Moses" and "Aint Got Time to Die," celebrating a people who overcame enslavement and found a way to survive, to worship, and to build.
