Harlem Stomp! A Cultural History of the Harlem Renaissance

Laban Carrick Hill

The Harlem Renaissance was one of the most exciting and important periods in American cultural history. Determined to make a new start for themselves at the dawn of the twentieth century, many African Americans joined the “Great Migration” and headed to the North. For those who landed in the hotbed of Harlem, New York, it was a time of intellectual, artistic, literary, and political blossoming.
