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

La Renaissance de Harlem et l'art nègre by Arthur Alfonso Schomburg( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in French and held by 20 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

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

The defiant energy of the New Negro Arts Movement that flourished between World War I and the Great Depression--more famously known as the Harlem Renaissance--was indelibly articulated by Langston Hughes: "We younger Negro artists who create now intend to express our individual dark-skinned selves without fear or shame. If white people are pleased we are glad. If they are not, it doesn't matter. ... We build our temples for tomorrow, strong as we know how, and we stand on top of the mountain, free within ourselves." Hughes was just one of the novelists who transformed American literature with sometimes startling explorations of fresh subject matter--including such controversial themes as "passing" and color prejudice within the black community--and a defiant insistence that African American writers must speak for themselves. Now, for the first time, the greatest works of the movement are assembled in a definitive two-volume edition featuring authoritative texts and a chronology, biographies, and notes reflecting the latest scholarship. Together, the nine books in Harlem Renaissance Novels form a vibrant and contentious collective portrait of African American culture in a moment of tumultuous change and great promise. "In some places the autumn of 1924 may have been an unremarkable season," wrote Arna Bontemps, one of the novelists in the collection. "In Harlem it was like a foretaste of paradise."
