This volume is the first index of African-American spirituals to be published in more than half a century.  Not since the 1930s, with the publication of the Index to Negro Spirituals by the Cleveland Public Library, has an index of spirituals been compiled. The spirituals in this volume are neatly organized in four indexes: a title index, first-line index, alternate title index, and a topical index that includes twenty major categories. A bibliography of indexed sources serves as a guide for further research. (click on image to purchase)
