About the Author:

David Lewis is the editor of Pencil Drawing Techniques, Oil Painting Techniques, Watercolor Painting Techniques, and Landscape Painting Techniques. 

Review:


"A masterly book, it is the most unusual and authoritative work on the art and politics of the Harlem renaissance era. This volume is in the Lewis sytle: elegant prose based upon solid and voluminous research."--Kenneth R. Janken, University of North Carolina


"This book is a thoroughly documented text that is an excellent reference text for students studying any of the literary, social, economic, political or intellectual aspects of the Harlem Renaissance period in Black culture."--Dr. Pearlie Peters,Rider College


"It was an extremely well-written, informative, and exciting book. I highly recommend its use for courses on the Harlem Renaissance, or upon Afro-American history in general."--Richard Berkley, New York Univ.


"A major study...one that thoroughly interweaves the philosophies and fads, the people and movements that combined to give a small segment of Afro-America a brief place in the sun."--Jim Haskins, The New York Times Book Review


"A brilliant work....As an interpretation of one of America's major eras, it should be indispensable for the student of America's 1920s and exciting for any reader."--Darwin T. Turner, The Washington Post Book World


"[Lewis'] courageously brilliant, often witty, and beautifully clear book will become definitive for at least fifty years."--Choice


"From the social forums to the street-corner radicals, the the jazz clubs, and the white visitors, Lewis leaves a stirring impression....A gem of a book."--Library Journal


"In this thorough, penetrating study, [Lewis] examines not only the glittery surface of 'Afro-America's Paris'--the parties and cabarets that sent whites uptown in search of 'the exotic and forbidden'--but also the complex mix of people and circumstances that fostered extraordinary black achievements in writing, music, and art."--Publishers Weekly


"Lewis's book brings [Harlem's] past alive again."--The Smithsonian


"A brilliant socio-historical study that recaptures the verve and magic of those fascinating years."--Arthur P. Davis, Howard University

Book Description Penguin Books Australia, Australia, 1997. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Penguin ed. Language: English . Brand New Book. The decade and a half that followed World War I was a time of tremendous optimism in Harlem. It was a time when Langston Hughes, Eubie Blake, Marcus Garvey, Zora Neale Hurston, Paul Robeson, and countless others made their indelible mark on the landscape of American culture. David Levering Lewis makes us feel the excitment of the times as he recaptures the intoxicating hope that black Americans could now create important art - and so at last compel the nation to recognize their equality. In his new preface, the author reconsiders the Harlem Renaissance in light of criticism surrounding the exploitation of the black community. Bookseller Inventory # AAS9780140263343
