General Note: "These songs collected by Lawrence Gellert from plantations, chain gangs, lumber camps are of inestimable value. They show that not all Negroes are shouting Spirituals, cheering endowed football teams, dancing to the blues or mouthing inter-racial oratory--supposedly unruffled by the economic stress of these days. Some of them are tired of being poor and picturesque and hungry. Terribly and bitterly tired. -- Langston Hughes. dust jacket flap
General Note: English.
