A Man Ain't Nothin'
"Jason McCall probes the relationships between heroes, statues, blues, music, labor, and Black life. Born in Alabama, raised in Montgomery, and now teaching at the University of North Alabama, McCall follows the legend of John Henry through the myths. The book is dedicated to sweat: 'For all the sweat I’ve given the world, and for all the sweat the world has given me.'"
