Description:

The city of Chicago has long been a haven for African American intellectuals, artists, and activists. This digital collection from the Chicago Public Library offers up bits of ephemera from the Chicago Renaissance that took place on the city's South Side from the early 1930s to the 1950s. Visitors will find almost two dozen items of interest here, including a self-portrait of Gordon Parks, images of C.L. Cook and his Dreamland Orchestra, and wonderful portraits of notables such as Langston Hughes and Gwendolyn Brooks. Visitors can search across all of the materials and even save items for future consideration.
