The New Negro Movement in a Global Perspective

Davarian Baldwin (Paul E. Raether Distinguished Professor of African American Studies, Trinity College)

March 26, 2015

There is little question that the dynamic outpouring of Black arts and letters, known as the Harlem Renaissance, forever changed the course and shape of the modern world. Yet few have situated the renaissance within its larger context, when the “renaissance” was simply one part of a New Negro movement that spanned the globe. In this webinar we will recover the broader New Negro experience as social movements and popular cultures of Black literature, sport, music, protest, and public behavior stretched from New York to New Orleans, from Paris to the Philippines and beyond.
