Temples for tomorrow looking back at the Harlem Renaissance by Geneviève Fabre ( )
10 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 2,012 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Harlem Renaissance is rightly considered to be a moment of creative exuberance and unprecedented explosion. Today, there is a renewed interest in this movement, calling for a re-evaluation and a closer scrutiny of the era and of documents that have only recently become available. "Temples for Tomorrow" reconsiders the period - between two world wars - which confirmed the intuitions of W. E. B. DuBois on the 'colour line' and gave birth to the 'American dilemma', later evoked by Gunnar Myrdal. Issuing from a generation bearing new hopes and aspirations, a new vision takes form and develops around the concept of the New Negro, with a goal: to recreate an African American identity and claim its legitimate place in the heart of the nation.In reality, this movement organised into a remarkable institutional network, which was to remain the vision of an elite, but which gave birth to tensions and differences. This collection attempts to assess Harlem's role as a 'Black Mecca', as 'site of intimate performance' of African American life, and as focal point in the creation of a diasporic identity in dialogue with the Caribbean and French-speaking areas. Essays treat the complex interweaving of Primitivism and Modernism, of folk culture and elitist aspirations in different artistic media, with a view to defining the interaction between music, visual arts, and literature. Also included are known Renaissance intellectuals and writers. Even though they had different conceptions of the role of the African American artist in a racially segregated society, most participants in the New Negro movement shared a desire to express a new assertiveness in terms of literary creation and indentity-building
History and memory in African-American culture by Geneviève Fabre ( Book )
11 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 1,269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
As Nathan Huggins once stated, altering American history to account fully for the nation's black voices would change the tone and meaning - the frame and the substance - of the entire story. Rather than a sort of Pilgrim's Progress tale of bold ascent and triumph, American history with the black parts told in full would be transmuted into an existential tragedy, closer, Huggins said, to Sartre's No Exit than to the vision of life in Bunyan. The relation between memory and history has received increasing attention both from historians and from literary critics. In this volume, a group of leading scholars has come together to examine the role of historical consciousness and imagination in African-American culture. The result is a complex picture of the dynamic ways in which African-American historical identity constantly invents and transmits itself in literature, art, oral documents, and performances
