The Autobiography of an Ex-colored Man by James Weldon Johnson

I have little knowledge about the Harlem Renaissance and think this as good a book to dive into the time and topic as any.
On me it made a great impression and was very informative.

  • Great! I haven't read that much African-American literature either. Think this is a good start!

  • Ah, she's one of my favorites from the period. Passing is my favorite but I also liked Quicksand. Neither book is very long and they usually come together in the same book.

  • I read a kindle version, that has this cover. Not sure you can get it in print.

  • No, which book would you recommend?

  • Ah, well I think that's understandable. Teachers can have a big affect on how you react to the work. What got me interested in the Harlem Renaissance was actually a professor. She was so great and enthusiastic about the period and was very receptive to my own ideas and interpretations. Have you read any Nella Larson?

  • You're very welcome. I like the cover you showed. Does yours look like that? I might have to seek that one out to replace the one I've got.

  • It does affect your language, doesn't it? The class on Harlem Renaissance was taught by a teacher I really didn't get along with, so skipped it and now I regret being so petty back then :(

  • I love this book! I studied the Harlem Renaissance for a while, and this was definitely one of my favorites. Very well written; such an interesting character. It's so nice to see a review of a classic!!! Also, I got in the habit of using the outdated language too--not just when talking about the literature, but just in general because I was dedicating so much of my life to studying and was emmerssed in the culture of Harlem in the 20's. Yeah... that was awkward XD
