About the Book

As well-known as The Harlem Renaissance has become in American Culture, with its bigger-than-life luminaries in literatures, music, art and theater, little is known about the ordinary, everyday Harlem folks and their lives - until now. Perhaps, for the first time and in poetic format, the veil is pulled aside to reveal an indepth picture of what it meant to be in Harlem during the Renaissance.
