   schema:reviewBody ""Spectres of 1919 analyzes how the highly politicized New Negro movement gave way to the culturalism of the Harlem Renaissance, as African American political and literary movements attempted to navigate between U.S. (or "bad") nationalism and self-determinationist (or "good") nationalism." "With the New Negro movement and the Harlem Renaissance, the 1920s were a landmark decade in African American political and cultural history, characterized by an upsurge in racial awareness, artistic creativity, and anticapitalist radicalism. In Spectres of 1919 Barbara Foley examines the turbulent year 1919, viewing it as the political crucible in which the radicalism of the 1920s was forged." "World War I and the Russian Revolution profoundly reshaped the American social landscape, with progressive reforms first halted and then reversed in the name of anti-Bolshevism. Dissent was stifled as labor activists and minority groups came under intense attack, culminating in the racist and antiradical violence of the "Red Summer" of 1919. Foley shows that African Americans had a significant relationship with the organized Left and that the New Negro movement's radical politics of race was also the politics of class."--Jacket." ;
