ìWe will build our temples for tomorrow, strong as we know how, and we will stand on top of the mountain, free within ourselves.î
ó Langston Hughes
The early decades of the twentieth century saw the transformation of Harlem into a Mecca where African Americans immersed themselves in black culture, and where their ideas and works gained acclaim among people of all colors. This was the era of W.E.B. Du Bois and the Jazz Age, when blacks challenged the status quo, Harlem was in its heyday, and downtown thrill-seekers crowded its bars, cabarets, and jazz joints.
Evocative and encompassing, Harlem Speaks places you at the zenith of the Harlem Renaissance, with chapters discussing the music, art, performance, writing, and politics of the ìNew Negro.î Read their rich life stories in essays by leading Harlem Renaissance authority Cary Wintz and other experts. Hear their music, literature, interviews, and speeches on the integrated audio CD that brings the Harlem of legend to vibrant life once again.
