Ashay says, "The Harlem Renaissance is one of my favorite periods in American history. For Black people it was a time of literary and intellectual achievement and self expression. And it was the time when artists and activists voices could be heard around the world. So much of our culture was born and cultivated during this era. Nicely formatted text for young people to read and enjoy. Must have for the classroom and library."
