Black History Month, Fire, and Life: <p><a href="https://libertarirynn.tumblr.com/post/170744530739/black-history-month-day-10-gospelblues-singer" class="tumblr_blog">libertarirynn</a>:</p> <blockquote><p>Black history month day 10: Gospel/Blues singer Blind Willie Johnson.</p> <p>Johnson was born to sharecroppers in a small town near Waco, Texas on January 25, 1897. His mother died when he was only 4, and his father remarried. When he was five years old his father gave him a cigar box guitar as his first instrument. He was not born blind, but acquired the condition early in life. It is unclear exactly how, although some historians agree that he was blinded after being splashed in the face with a caustic liquid by his stepmother. Other theories are that he was wearing the wrong glasses or that he viewed a partial solar eclipse that was visible over Texas in 1905. At any rate, Johnson became a musician and street preacher, earning change on street corners for his performances. In 1927 he recorded several sessions at a pop up studio with talent scout Frank Buckley Walker, Who also discovered stars such as Hank Williams. Johnson was given $50 for each usable side, plus a bonus for relinquishing any royalties from the sales of the records.</p> <p>He had four more recording sessions and a fairly successful career as a recording artist and street preacher until the great depression minimized his audience. In 1945, his home was destroyed by a fire but he continued to live in the ruins as he had nowhere else to go. Because of these living conditions he was exposed to the humidity and contracted malarial fever. The local hospitals would not admit him, either because of his visual impairment or because of his race. Over the course of the year his condition steadily worsened and he died on September 18, 1945. His death certificate reported syphilis and blindness as contributing factors.</p> <p>Johnson’s music was revived in the 1960s thanks in large part to his inclusion on Harry Smith’s Anthology of American Folk Music in 1952 and the efforts of the blues guitarist Reverend Gary Davis, a highly regarded figure in New York’s blossoming folk scene who taught Johnson’s music to young musicians. This led to his music being re-interpreted by acts like Peter, Paul and Mary and Bob Dylan. </p> <p>This is the only known picture of Blind Willie Johnson.</p></blockquote> <p>And I just have to include one of his most famous songs, in fact one that was selected by Carl Sagan and others to be placed on Voyager 1 (which is now the furthest man-made object from earth at over 10,000,000,000 miles away) in case extraterrestrial beings ever came across it and wanted to learn something about the people of earth. No words, just plaintive humming. Meant to represent abject and total loneliness: <a href="https://youtu.be/BNj2BXW852g">https://youtu.be/BNj2BXW852g</a></p>
