The Sandman & Johnny Speaks

Season 1, Ep. 13

A sweet nighttime children's classic by Paul Laurence Dunbar (1865-1906) of Dayton, Ohio wrote his first poem at the age of 6.

Dunbar was 19 when he self-published his first book of poetry and went on to write novels, short stories, plays, and musicals.

Paul Dunbar was very gifted as he wrote poetry and stories in American southern dialect, as you heard in A Cabin Tale (episode 10), and in American northern dialect here. Feel free to read or sing along here: The Sandman and Johnny Speaks.

Dunbar is my favorite poet, in my opinion, he's America's Shakespeare and God Father of the Spoken Word Movement in the USA.
