Bookcase Tour: Black Writers, The Jazz Age, and The Harlem Renaissance (Free Library of Philadelphia) – VIRTUAL

February 25 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

The Harlem Renaissance is the fulcrum for this look “behind the bookcase” at great Black writers. Beginning with Paul Laurence Dunbar, the first acclaimed Black poet after Emancipation, we’ll spend the bulk of our time with letters and first editions of poet Langston Hughes and philosopher Alain LeRoy Locke-including the keystone work of the Harlem Renaissance, Locke’s The New Negro.
