A New Renaissance: A Celebration of African American
Publication Date: February 27, 2022
More than 100 years ago, a group of musicians, artists, poets, and authors started a movement that would influence history and African American culture for years to come. Today, 12 authors have joined forces to honor the trailblazers of the Harlem Renaissance with A New Renaissance. This beautifully written collection of original fiction, ranging from children’s to contemporary by both new and established authors, will make you laugh, cry, and even shout out loud. But most of all, it will make you proud that the griot tradition lives on and is here to stay.
