Welcome to Professor Mitchell's Course
Selected Authors: The Harlem Renaissance

This course will introduce students to African-American fiction, drama, poetry, nonfiction, art, music, and film of the Harlem Renaissance. The Harlem Renaissance also referred to as the New Negro Movement and the New Negro Renaissance, marks a seminal historical moment in which roughly from 1919 through the 1940s writers, musicians, and artists of the African Diaspora (particularly African-Americans, West Indians, and Africans) produced a complex body of written and visual text that drew upon the complexities of black life. The geographical site most associated with the Renaissance is Harlem, New York; however, black artists in the movement also hailed from and lived in other locations across the United States, including Chicago [painter, Archibald J. Motley, and filmmaker, Oscar Micheaux]; Philadelphia [Jessie Redmond Fauset]; Washington, D. C. [Edward C. Williams, Jean Toomer, and Anne Spencer]; and the American Southwest [Anita Scott Coleman].  Readings and discussion will include major black-inspired aesthetic, political, and social movements from 1919 through 1940.
