1. Go Tell It on the Mountain. James Baldwin. Knopf, 1953. First edition. Original dust jacket.

    The semi-autobiographical novel examines the role of the Christian Church in the lives of African-Americans, both as a source of repression and moral hypocrisy and as a source of inspiration and community. It also, more subtly, examines racism in the United States.
