The Harlem Renaissance is regarded as one of the greatest moments in American history. Most readers have a general understanding of the literary movement. Who among us doesn’t know the names Langston Hughes and Zora Neale Hurston? In this class we endeavor to consider the oft-ignored aspects of the period: why the Renaissance was brought to life and why it was maintained; how the intellectuals went about defining and imagining their work; and why it remains so difficult for scholars to come to consensus about when the movement took place. We will go beyond simplistic discussions of Langston Hughes and Zora Neale Hurston in order to challenge some of the prevailing notions about what the Harlem Renaissance was all about.
