The Muse in Bronzeville (African American Creative Expression in Chicago, 1932-1950) (Book) [show prizes]
Title: The Muse in Bronzeville (African American Creative Expression in Chicago, 1932-1950)
Author: Richard A. Courage
Author: Robert Bone
Abstract: A dynamic reappraisal of a neglected period in African American cultural history from the early 1930's to the cold war, is the first comprehensive critical study of the creative awakening that occurred on Chicago's South Side. This highly informative and accessible work, enhanced with repro-ductions of works of art of the same period, examines Black Chicago's "Renaissance" through richly anecdotal profiles of such figures as Richard Wright, Gwendolyn Brooks, Margaret Walker, Charles White, Gordon Parks, Horace Cayton, Muddy Waters, Mahalia Jackson, and Katherine Dunham.
