In 2003, the “Encyclopedia of the Harlem Renaissance” published by Facts On File became the first comprehensive volume on the much celebrated movement that gave birth to modern black culture. In February 2006, Black Issues Book Review voted the encyclopedia one its “essential titles for the home library.”
Prior to that, it won the Choice Academic Title Award and Best History Book Award for it’s treatment of an era that not only gave us such outstanding authors as Zora Neale Hurston and leaders like James Weldon Johnson, but laid the foundation for the Civil Rights Movement and provided such lasting legacies as gospel music, jazz, the blues, rap, and other staples of African-American culture.
