A podcast about the Harlem Renaissance, African American Literature and more. The Harlem Renaissance is considered the first heyday of African American art and culture. How did this period come about and what influence did it have on later writers like Baldwin in the following heyday of the 1960s?
Kunsthal KAdE Amersfoort has created a podcast about the classics and highlights of African-American literature in connection with the Tell Me Your Story exhibition in collaboration with Schwob, NRC and the Eemland Library. Michel Krielaars, NRC books chief, talks with NRC editor Toef Jaeger, writer/journalist Dominique van Varsseveld and art historian and curator of Tell Me Your Story Rob Perrée about the literary classics of African-American literature.
