Abstract:

The David Levering Lewis "Voices from the Renaissance" Collection consists of forty-three summary transcripts of interviews Lewis conducted with individuals who were either active during the Harlem Renaissance period or who knew people who were Harlem Renaissance figures. The interviews were done for Lewis' book, "When Harlem was in Vogue" (1981).

The transcriptions are impressionistic rather than verbatim, which Lewis prepared from the fifty-two audiotapes containing the interviews. Interviewees include Raoul Abdul, Wilhelmina Adams, Aaron Douglas, Jean Blackwell Hutson, C.L.R. James, Bruce Nugent and Leigh Whipper regarding their lives and about W.E.B. DuBois, Langston Hughes, Zora Neale Hurston, J.A. Rogers, and Carl Van Vechten and his book, "Nigger Heaven."
