Description
Information
Set against the backdrop of 1930s Harlem, 'Go Tell It on the Mountain' relates the progress of Johnny Grimes along with tortuous road to salvation. The greatest obstacle he has to overcome is the pure, scalding hatred he feels for his father, a lay preacher, whose bigotry, fear and fanaticism make him abuse and repress his own family. At once bluesy and biblical, Baldwin's tale is full of passion and guilt, of sinners brought low and prayers singing on the wind.
