Grade 7 Up-This serviceable overview covers the period in the 1920s when many aspects of African-American culture merged in Harlem. The book traces the intellectual life that flourished there from its roots in the Great Migration of blacks from the South after the turn of the century and the rise of activist organizations that promoted racial equality, such as the NAACP. The contributions of public figures and artists such as W. E. B. DuBois, Langston Hughes, Zora Neale Hurston, Claude McKay, and James Weldon Johnson are outlined, as is the period's legacy. Black-and-white photos are scattered throughout the text. James Haskins's Harlem Renaissance (Millbrook, 1996) is more detailed and offers more insight and examples.
