“The final measure of the greatness of all peoples is the amount and standard of the literature and art they have produced. The world does not know that a people is great until that people produces great literature or art. No people that has produced great literature and art has ever been looked upon by the world as distinctly inferior.” - James Weldon Johnson, Book of American Negro Poetry (1922) Alain Lock, The New Negro (1925) We have tomorrow Bright before us Like a flame. Yesterday, a night-gone thing A sun-down name. And dawn today Broad arch above the road we came. We march! “Poem” Langston Hughes (1924)
