Synopsis: 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. It was an artistic and socio-cultural stirring that occurred in the African-American community as a result of 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. During this time in Harlem there was 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; a general introduction; A-to-Z entries; a chronology; a bibliography and list of sources for further reading, listening, and viewing; subject indexes; and a general index, this encyclopedia contains an abundance of information presented in an accessible format that everyone can enjoy.
From the Author:
The story behind Encyclopedia of the Harlem Renaissance has probably been told best in the personal essay "Strength to Carry On," which is included in The American Poet Who Went Home Again. I had quit my job as a bookstore manager in order to serve as a fulltime caregiver and was working as a freelance journalist while also writing the novel that eventually would become Christmas When Music Almost Killed the World. I had serious doubts about tackling a project as monumental as the first published encyclopedia on the Harlem Renaissance. After several rounds of debates with myself and consultations with co-author Sandra L. West, I decided such an encyclopedia was overdue and if my pen was required to help make it happen, then help make it happen I would.
Not only would it allow me to publicly express my gratitude for all that authors such as James Weldon Johnson, Zora Neale Hurston, W.E.B. Du Bois, and Langston Hughes had given to my life, but it would also allow me to provide educators with a powerful teaching tool and general readers with an entertaining inspiring guide to one of the most creatively brilliant and inspiring periods in American history. What writer wouldn't want to rise to such a wonderful challenge?
