Harlem Stomp!: A Cultural History of the Harlem Renaissance

Harlem Stomp!: A Cultural History of the Harlem Renaissance Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Harlem Renaissance (1919-1934) is one of the most fascinating periods of American cultural history. Harlem Stomp! is the first trade book to bring this important period alive for young adults. Lavishly illustrated with sepia tone photographs, reproductions of historical documents, and full-color paintings, the book also includes a powerful foreword written by award-winning poet Nikki Giovanni, and features artwork, political rhetoric, poetry, and prose by prominent Harlem Renaissance artists, activists, and writers, such as Langston Hughes, Zora Neale Hurston, Sargent Johnson, and Marcus Garvey. Harlem Stomp! is both a historical exploration and a lively celebration of the Harlem Renaissance.

Review:

"This volume, clearly a labor of love, is a visual treat, from the cover art by Christopher Myers to the pages chock full of period photographs and artwork of the age." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"[E]nergetic, elegantly designed....This compelling history will leave readers familiar or unfamiliar with this high-flying period eager to discover more." Publishers Weekly

Synopsis:

Explores the literary, artistic, and intellectual creativity of the Harlem Renaissance and discusses the lives and work of Louis Armstrong, Langston Hughes, Zora Neale Hurston, and other notable figures of the era.

Synopsis:

When it was released in 2004, Harlem Stomp! was the first trade book to bring the Harlem Renaissance alive for young adults! Meticulously researched and lavishly illustrated, the book is a veritable time capsule packed with poetry, prose, photographs, full-color paintings, and reproductions of historical documents. Now, after more than three years in hardcover, three starred reviews and a National Book Award nomination, Harlem Stomp! is being released in paperback.

Synopsis:

Lavishly illustrated with sepia-tone photographs, reproductions of historical documents, and full-color paintings, "Harlem Stomp!" is both a historical exploration and a lively celebration of the Harlem Renaissance. Young Adult.
