This is the first book-length study of the writings, work, and life of Renaissance man and Alabama native Albert Murray. The collection consists of essays and interviews written by prominent scholars of African American literature, jazz, and Albert Murray that illustrate Murray's place as a central figure in African American arts and letters and as an American cultural pioneer. "A very important contribution to the field of African American literary and cultural studies.... It present[s] the many facets of Murray's intellectual odyssey...[illuminating his] contribution to our national discussion on race, as well as his germinal insights on music, visual art, and literature." ---Herman Beavers, author of Wrestling Angels into Song: The Fictions of Ernest J. Gaines and James Alan McPherson "I appreciated the way the voices `sound' in the volume....It has the feeling of an ensemble---or, to use one of Mr. Murray's metaphors, a jazz band, with Murray's voice `taking the break' at key points. The melody is Murray, and there are countless riffs on his work." ---Carolyn J. Medine, coeditor of Teaching African American Religions

Folk art is one of the American South's most significant areas of creative achievement, and this comprehensive yet accessible reference details that achievement from the sixteenth century through the present. This volume of The New Encyclopedia of Southern Culture explores the many forms of aesthetic expression that have characterized southern folk art, including the work of self-taught artists, as well as the South's complex relationship to national patterns of folk art collecting. Fifty-two thematic essays examine subjects ranging from colonial portraiture, Moravian material culture, and southern folk pottery to the South's rich quilt-making traditions, memory painting, and African American vernacular art, and 211 topical essays include profiles of major folk and self-taught artists in the region.
