The Alleged "Self-Pity" in Afro-American Folk Songs.
Okeke-Ezigbo, Emeka
Western Journal of Black Studies, v6 n2 p108-15 Sum 1982
Analyzes the content of Black folk songs to refute the notion that self hate is evidenced in Black folklore. Demonstrates that the Black world view as reflected in folk songs is essentially integrative, and sees both good and bad qualities in Black as well as in White elements. (MJL)
