Jeffrey Stewart and MaryLouise Patterson examine two key figures of the Harlem Renaissance: Langston Hughes and Alain Locke. In The New Negro: The Life of Alain Locke, Stewart chronicles the education and career of Locke, the queer philosopher and architect of the Black Arts Movement. Patterson is the editor of Letters from Langston, which contains the writer’s correspondence throughout the Jazz Age and beyond. Sponsored by African and African American Studies.
