About

This blog has been set up to showcase review pieces written by students enrolled on the 2nd year Harlem Renaissance module at the University of East Anglia. In Week 8 of the module, students submitted a review of a document (novel, poem, article, editorial, essay, song, painting etc) written by a prominent Harlem Renaissance artist, intellectual or activist. The sample posts on this site are designed to prompt readers to think about the relevance of this material in terms of shaping black politics and culture during the Harlem Renaissance, whilst encouraging us to reflect on how this work helped shape ideas relating to the construction of the ‘New Negro’.

For any questions relating to the blog pieces or the module as a whole email Dr. Nick Grant (UEA).
