Additional Book Details
From "I Am a Black Man"
I am a Black man
my history written with blood
some sweet songs of sorrow
are composed for my soul
can be seen plowing in the fields
Can be heard
in the night
In these poems of celebration and endurance, Leonard A. Slade Jr. addresses the human need to be connected not only to the physical "now," but also to the other lives and other music we pass through during our lives. Slade's unique voice exposes the sweetness, the sorrow, and the humor of life's celebrations and struggles, but above all is the importance of love and the reliance on God and in faith for transcendence. These are poems to help us to endure, to grow, and to triumph.
