Bernice Reagon; Folk Songs: The South

Bernice Johnson Reagon FW02457 / FA 2457

Reagon writes, "My history was wrapped carefully for me by my fore-parents in the songs of the church, the work fields, and the blues. Ever since this discovery I've been trying to find myself, using the first music I've ever known as a basic foundation for my search for truth." This album features songs from Reagon's journey.
