Product Description

From its beginnings in 1919, with soldiers returning from the Great War, to its sputtering end in 1934, with the Great Depression, the New Negro Movement in arts and letters proclaimed the experiences of African American men and women in reverberating manifestos, poems of exhilarating energy and candor, and in novels, short stories, essays, and plays.
The Portable Harlem Renaissance Reader magnificently represents the great voices of this era. With an introduction, chronology, and contextual headnotes by David Levering Lewis, the volume includes the work of some forty-five Renaissance figures: short fiction and self-contained novel excerpts by Zora Neal Hurston, Nella Larsen, Wallace Thurman, Jean Toomer and others.
