Review:
The Harlem Renaissance continues to provide compelling material for authors. This volume offers seldom seen photographs and subject matter, such as “jive” terms popularized during the period. The era encompassed so much art, music and literature- the author touches upon it all. Packed with information accessible through a thorough index, this cultural history is equally a great browsing book, where readers discover something unique with each turn of the page. Author Laban Carrick Hill does a fine job of describing the joy and pain experienced by African Americans during this period. Award winning artist, Christopher Myers has provided almost irresistible cover art.
