The Emergence Of The Harlem Renaissance
Cary D. Wintz
The Harlem Renaissance was both a spontaneous outpouring of creativity by black writers and poets and a planned literary movement by the black intelligentsia. A decade before the first Renaissance works appeared, W.E.B. Du Bois, James Weldon Johnson, and other intellectuals outlined their visions for a black literary movement. This volume includes early analysis of black literary activities as well as details of the literary contests sponsored by Crisis and Opportunity. It also often includes the "Harlem" issue of Survey Graphic and a selection from Carl Van Vechten's Nigger Heaven.
