 Join us in welcoming Dr. Lawrence Jackson as he presents information from his important book, The Indignant Generation: A Narrative History of African-American Writers and Critics, 1934–1960,  which is the  first narrative history of the neglected but essential period
of African  American literature between the Harlem Renaissance and the
Civil Rights Era.  The years between these two indispensable epochs saw
the communal rise of  Richard Wright, Gwendolyn Brooks, Ralph Ellison,
Lorraine Hansberry, James  Baldwin, and many other influential black
writers. While these individuals  have been duly celebrated, little
attention has been paid to the political  and artistic milieu in which
they produced their greatest works. With this  commanding study,
Lawrence Jackson recalls the lost history of a crucial  era. You won't want to miss this special evening with Jackson, who Cornel West calls "a first-rate historian."
