T 09/15 The Jazz Age The Harlem Renaissance.
For some perspective, a little bit of timeline:
Homework: Read all of the biography and poetry of Langston Hughes on this link (main text in center and right links, you don't need to read all of the prose pieces on the left, but they are very interesting.)
I have only one for the assigned reading: http://www.poets.org/viewmedia.php/prmMID/5657
to introduce you to The Harlem Renaissance.
Be ready to discuss his work, themes, formal strategies, etc.
