"In every important respect, Lewis' anthology is a worthy companion to his classic study of the Harlem Renaissance, When Harlem Was in Vogue. His selections, chosen with imagination and flair, reflect his uncommon mastery of the subject. This volume offers a fresh and brilliant portrait of African American art and culture in the 1920s."-Arnold Rampersad. Gathering a representative sampling of the New Negro Movement's most important figures, and providing substantial introductory essays, headnotes, and brief biographical notes, Lewis' volume-organized chronologically-includes the poetry and prose of Sterling Brown, Countee Cullen, W. E. B. Du Bois, Zora Neale Hurston, James Weldon Johnson, and others.
