Honoring the Harlem Renaissance

Via Jason Kottke: The United States Postal Service recently released a set of four stamps honoring prominent literary figures of the Harlem Renaissance. The stamps feature Nella Larsen, Alain Locke, Arturo Alfonso Schomburg, and Anne Spencer.

The Harlem Renaissance of the 1920s was one of the great artistic and literary movements in American history. As African-American writers and artists pushed the boundaries of their identities and their art, they created a diverse body of work that explored their shared history and experience, embodied the spirit of the times, and let new and distinctive voices be heard.
