Sandra L. West and Clement Alexander Price are clearly two writers who know the value and significance of the Harlem Renaissance. This is the single most comprehensive, inspiring, and informative text on the subject. The writers, artists, athletes, and performers of the era fill the pages with the full beauty, agonies and victories of their lives. This book not only educates but entertains in a huge way.
