The Dialect of the Black American (1970) Spoken Word LP

Western Electric Record #MG-202784 (1970)

“All of us are familiar with the sounds of foreign tongues. We enjoy hearing the rolling softness of French, for example, or the guttural strength of German. All of us also have heard the speech of the black American. But we rarely grant it the same consideration we extend automatically to the languages of other lands. The black dialect, as seen by the linguist, is the subject of this record…At a time when interracial communication and understanding are assuming enormous importance, this record hopes to help explain for listeners of all races what black dialect is and how it functions. The intent is, simply, information. The difficult goal is to let us all, as we talk with one another, hear with open ears.”
