The Beinecke Library's new exhibition, “Destined to Be Known: The James Weldon Johnson Memorial Collection at 75,” explores, in part, the life and work of James Weldon Johnson; materials from Johnson's literary archive (JWJ MSS 49) reveal aspects of his roles as civil rights activist, lyricist, man of letters, poet and writer, and diplomat. A man of letters and of the law, author of solemn lyrics and popular love songs, Johnson led a multi-faceted life and his career was one of constant reinvention.
