Abstract:

The Countee Cullen-Harold Jackman Memorial Collection documents the Black experience in the late nineteenth and twentieth century with a focus on contributions to literature and the arts. The collection includes programs, letters, printer's proofs, book reviews, pamphlets, periodicals, broadsides, sheet music, handbills, photographs, and manuscripts. Many of the items are autographed. A significant portion of the collection documents Harlem Renaissance artists. Included in the collection are files on such notables as James Baldwin, Horace Mann Bond, Arna Bontemps, Owen Dodson, W.E.B. DuBois, Langston Hughes, Paul and Eslanda Robeson, Leigh Whipper and others. Photographs of Harlem Renaissance artists by Carl Van Vechten are included. Of interest are the periodicals and newsletters such as Fire, The Negro Actors Guild of America Inc. Newsletter, The Handy News, and The Negro Theater Spotlight. There are audiotapes recorded in the 1970s of conferences, lectures, and interviews. Folders of personal papers about Harold Jackman give insight to his life and career. There are also a few folders of materials on Countee Cullen that include letters and postcards, typescripts of two plays and two poems, news clippings and programs. Books that accompanied the donations are cataloged among the titles in the Archives Research Center.
