The Dresher Center for the Humanities presents Richard A. Long, Atticus Haygood Professor Emeritus, Emory University, for the Daphne Harrison Lecture, “Harlem Renaissance Personages and Haiti,” Wednesday, April 13, 4 p.m. in the Albin O. Kuhn Library Gallery.
This presentation will provide an account of the Haitian contacts and connections of several distinguished Harlem Renaissance figures, most of whom are included in Alain Locke’s “The New Negro,” the principal compendium of the movement.
