3 HU, CD, WR
First Semester. The Harlem Renaissance refers to the period of African American Arts and Letters from roughly 1919 to 1940. Our examination will include poetry, fiction and non-fiction, and will revolve around the ways in which writers, activists, and artists collaboratively extended African American aesthetic traditions, as we address the major themes, criticisms, and problems discussed by Black writers of the period. Works by Jean Toomer, Nella Larsen, Langston Hughes, and Claude McKay will be examined, among others.
