Black no more : being an account of the strange and wonderful workings of science in the Land of the Free, A.D. 1933-1940 by George S Schuyler( Book )

35 editions published between 1931 and 2018 in English and held by 1,114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The landmark comic satire that asks, "What would happen if all black people in America turned white?" It's New Year's Day 1933 in New York City, and Max Disher, a young black man, has just found out that a certain Dr. Junius Crookman has discovered a mysterious process that allows people to bleach their skin white--a new way to "solve the American race problem." Max leaps at the opportunity, and after a brief stay at the Crookman Sanitarium, he becomes Matthew Fisher, a white man who's able to attain everything he's ever wanted: money, power, good liquor, and the white woman who rejected him when he was black. Lampooning myths of white supremacy and racial purity and caricaturing prominent African American leaders like W.E.B. Du Bois, Madam C.J. Walker, and Marcus Garvey, Black No More is a masterwork of speculative fiction and a hilarious satire of America's obsession with race.

George Samuel Schuyler, was a noted black satirist of the early 20th century. This book is an intricate tale of black nationalism, science fiction, and incredible feats of derring-do intended to bolster black pride and accomplishment in the uneasy years before World War II. The book originally ran as weekly serialized fiction in the Philadelphia Courier from 1936 to 1938. Principal character Dr. Henry Belsidus is obsessed with releasing blacks from the crushing tyranny of racism and poverty, and he plans to take over the world and enlists black intellectuals to help him. Underlying the story is an attempt to resolve the philosophical, economic, and cultural chasms between blacks and whites. The book reflects the hope and despair felt by blacks during this time--From Library Journal

Harlem Renaissance : four novels of the 1930s by Langston Hughes( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Four Novels of the 1930s captures the diversity of genre and tone nourished by the Renaissance. Langston Hughes's Not Without Laughter (1931)-- the poet's only novel, an elegiac, elegantly realized coming-of-age tale suffused with childhood memories of Missouri and Kansas-- follows a young man from his rural origins to the big city. George S. Schuyler's Black No More (1931), a satire founded on the science-fiction premise of a wonder drug permitting blacks to change their race, savagely caricatures public figures white and black alike in its raucous, carnivalesque send-up of American racial attitudes. Considered the first detective story by an African American writer, Rudolph Fisher's The Conjure-Man Dies (1932) is a mystery that comically mixes and reverses stereotypes, placing a Harvard-educated African "conjure-man" at the center of a phantasmagoric charade of deaths and disappearances. Black Thunder (1936), Arna Bontemps's stirring fictional recreation of Gabriel Prosser's 1800 slave revolt, which, though unsuccessful, shook Jefferson's Virginia to its core, marks a turn from aestheticism toward political militance in its exploration of African American history
La Renaissance de Harlem et l'art nègre by Arthur Alfonso Schomburg( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in French and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La Renaissance de Harlem, mouvement littéraire et artistique des années 20-30 aux Etats-Unis, est connue sous le nom du mouvement du ± Nouveau Nègre ». Les essais traduits dans ce volume retracent les prises de position des acteurs majeurs de ce mouvement : d'une part, Arthur Schomburg, George Schuyler, Countee Cullen, W.E.B. Du Bois, Alain Locke, Zora Neale Hurston, figures centrales de cette renaissance culturelle ; d'autre part, Richard Wright, Romare Bearden et James Baldwin qui assurèrent la transition avec les décennies qui suivirent le déclin du mouvement. Ecrivains, philosophes, historiens, peintres, essayistes, ces artistes et intellectuels répondent aux interrogations suivantes : quelle définition donner de l'art nègre? Quelle est la mission de l'artiste afro-américain? L'art doit-il être propagande? Cet art nègre est-il distinct de l'art américain? Si oui, en quoi l'est-il? Quel public doit viser l'artiste nègre? La littérature, la poésie, le théâtre, la danse, la musique, la peinture, le folklore : tous les arts sont convoqués
