Harlem Renaissance

Check out the Encyclopedia of the Harlem Rennaissance, a gorgeous, information-loaded reference work that just arrived at Resnick Library.  Look for this two-volume set in the NX section of our Reference Collection (on the main floor). 

It’s hard to imagine you won’t find what you’re looking for in this book.  Writers like Langston Hughes, Ralph Ellison, Dorothy West and Zora Neale Hurston.  Artists like Romare Bearden, Edwin A. Harleston, Nancy Prophet and William H. Johnson.  In addition to essays on prominent individuals of the Harlem Renaissance, there are extensive articles on topics such as Jazz, Literature, Film, WPA, WWI, Riots, Vaudeville, and major newspapers and literary magazines from the period.  If you are inspired to further research, each article offers a list of additional resources.  Enjoy!  -Pam
