Today we celebrate the 4th of July by reading Claude McKay’s “America.” Please join us!
Claude McKay’s excellent “If We Must Die.”
I am a bit infatuated with the Harlem Renaissance writers for their skill and audacity. It’s really great that in the face of adversity, these writers were committing to paper some extremely influential work that was also politically-minded and creative.
The Harlem Renaissance was a period between 1910 and the mid-1930s that saw a large amount of Blacks generating art from Harlem in New York City.
