The Harlem Renaissance (1919-1934) is one of the most fascinating periods of American cultural history. When it was first released in 2004, Harlem Stomp! was the first trade book to bring this important period alive for young adults.
Lavishly illustrated with a cover by Caldecott Honor winner Christopher Myers, with sepia tone photographs, reproductions of historical documents, and full-color paintings, this book features a powerful foreword written by award-winning poet Nikki Giovanni, as well as artwork, political rhetoric, poetry,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.
Now, in time for Black History Month, we have repackaged this classic with a fresh new cover and accessible trim size so even more readers can experience this lively celebration of the Harlem Renaissance.
