The Genius of the Harlem Renaissance, Volume 1 is the first volume of a two-part reader. This first volume contains readings, with a few exceptions, from the first part of the Harlem Renaissance (1915–1926). As the 20th century approached, Black creatives made substantial contributions to America’s cultural lifeblood. Their works were signs of things to come and set the stage for the expressive explosion of literature and art we now know as the Harlem Renaissance. Each passage will include brief biographies of their authors, as well as information about the historic events that were happening at the time they were produced written by the Reader’s editor, Dr. Andrea Oliver.
