Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Harlem in the age of the New Negro was not only the capital of Afro-America it was the epicenter of teh African Diaspora as black populations were scattered throughout the nations of the Black Atlantic. Serious scholarly attention has rightly focused on the role of Marcus Garvey and his view uniting Africans across national lines concerned with independence, economic cooperation, repatriation, and liberation and formation of a united AFrica. However, this paper seeks to understand how the mainstream African American press perceived the Anglophone, Francophone, and Latin cultures from the Age of the New Negro, and the Great Depression. Black newspapers were themajor means of communicationwithin black communities throughout the nation.

This paper will compare the economic, political, and social perceptions of the Black Atlantic as represented in key newspapers and journals with that of the AFrican America poet and novelist Langston Hughes. Hughes was one of the most wedely travelled black intellectuals of his day and the most internationally read black author of this period.
