Excerpts

Explore the cultural, political, and social richness of the Harlem Renaissance.
In the decades of the 1920s and 1930s in the section of New York City known as Harlem, there developed a unique awakening of mind and spirit, of race consciousness and artistic advancement. This declaration of African-American independence became known as the Harlem Renaissance. Stemming from the Great Migration when large numbers of blacks living in the rural South made their way to the urban centers of the North and Midwest, it was marked by an emergence of new ideas in political thought; numerous groundbreaking artistic developments in theater, music, literature, and visual arts; and an inauguration of civil rights organizations, unions, and other associations.
Encyclopedia of the Harlem Renaissance is a fascinating guide to this colorful and culturally productive era in African-American history. Including a foreword by Dr. Clement Alexander Price, an esteemed scholar and the current director of the Institute on Ethnicity, Culture, and the Modern Experience at Rutgers University; a general introduction; A-to-Z entries; a chronology; a glossary of slang; a bibliography and list of sources for further reading, listening, and viewing; a subject index; and a general index, this encyclopedia contains an abundance of information presented in an accessible format that everyone can enjoy.
