In writing his Self-Portrait of Black America, anthropologist, folklorist, and humanist John Gwaltney went in search of Core Black Peoplethe ordinary men and women who make up black Americaand asked them to define their culture. Their responses, recorded in Drylongso, are to American oral history what blues and jazz are to American music. If the people in William H. Johnson's and Jacob Lawrence's paintings could talk, this is what they would say.
