John Beecher – To Live And Die In Dixie

Only 1 left in stock


To Live and Die in Dixie is a collection of narrative poems written by social activist and poet John Beecher, a distant descendant of abolitionists Henry Ward Beecher and Harriet Beecher Stowe. Born in New York and raised in Alabama, Beecher was appalled by the injustices experienced by poor and working class black and white Southerners. To bring attention to these injustices, he wrote searing prose poetry illustrating the harshness in their lives. In this recording John Beecher gives a powerful performance in the reading of his epic narrative poem “In Egypt Land” and 12 other shorter poems. Liner notes include the text for the poems. This recording is the only source for any of Beecher’s poetry that is presently available.
