BECAUSE THEY were the first
among the Negroes to break
through the hostilities and social
restrictions, Negro artists have be-
come the spokesmen for their race,
LaGrone said. ,
It was during . slavery days
that Negroes began to play the
banjo and other rhythm instru-
ments. Negro spirituals also
grew out of this period as the
common expression of the desire
of slaves for freedom, he ex-
"From these beginnings de-
veloped the Negro bands and
Negro singers which have left
such an imprint on Americane
music of today."
"NO ART h as captured t he
heart of the.Negroes like poetry,"
LaGrone -declared. Negro poetry
was being published even before
the Esmancipation, he pointed out.
The first Negro poets wrote
a bout salvation and God, but
the themes of liberty and folk-
ways soon appeared, he said.
Negro poets of the new school
do not want to write about or
identify their poetry with their
race, LaGrone said. He added that
he did not expect them to produce
the more sensitive kind of poetry.
Concluding his talk, LaGrone
read selections of Negro-American
poetry, including some poems from
his own book, "Footfalls."
