James Weldon Johnson: Writings

The Autobiography of an Ex-Colored Man | Along This Way | essays and editorials | selected poems More
Edited by William L. Andrews

The Autobiography of an Ex-Colored Man established James Weldon Johnson as the first truly modern black American novelist, while his Along This Way, published two decades later (in 1933), recounted his rich life as a diplomat, journalist, songwriter, and secretary to the NAACP. This collection of his writings, which includes both of those longer works plus several rare essays, poems, and songs, is yet another important volume in The Library of America series.” — Dallas Morning News
