Abstract:

"As part of the WPA Writer's Project, a number of gifted young authors such as Ralph Ellison and Dorothy West created a vibrant record of Harlem's daily life, nightlife and intellectual scene. Lost for years in the vaults of The Library of Congress, here for the first time are richly atmospheric essays detailing an exciting place, an evocative period and a wonderfully diverse collection of people." "A Renaissance in Harlem is an essential addition to the historical record of the African-American experience, a startling re-creation of a lost era in the life of New York City, and a valuable look at the early writings of two masters of American literature. Filled with humor, compassion, outrage and hope, it is an uplifting celebration of a place and people integral to the American story. Book jacket."--Jacket.
