Peter J. Gomes Favorite Books


Peter J. Gomes was a half Black and half Cape Verdean preacher and professor at Harvard University.  He was not a Afrotraditionalist to my knowledge (although I won’t dismiss it completely as he was known to enjoy Amos & Andy)  but he was certainly a traditionalist of a sort despite being a black fellow from Massachusetts whom was also gay.

He had great respect for the western artistic canon and in the following passages from the book Cheerful Money, he explains his “Young Fogyism”


Here he lists his favorite books with a very interesting back story.
