On My Journey Now free pdf "The intimate, unpretentious talk about familiar songs will grab readers, who will want to find out more about the inspiring history."

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 "Ain t Got Time to Die," celebrating a people who overcame enslavement and found a way to survive, to worship, and to build."
