Book of the Day "Go Tell It On the Mountain"

  This short, american classic story brightly illuminates the double-edged sword that is religion. How does religion help us and how does it harm us?
  Based partly on the author’s life in Harlem as black son of an abusive preacher, this book highlights the racism of the time, and what life was like for many black youth during the depression.
  Using a combination of lyrical compassion and resonant rage, he portrays a 14 year old boy questioning the terms of his identity.
  The main character is the son of an abusive pentecostal preacher in Harlem during the Depression. The action of this short novel spans a single day in John’s life, and yet manages to encompass on an epic scale his family’s troubled past and his own inchoate longings for the future, set against a shining vision of a city where he both does and does not belong.
