Description: Think of this as The Power of Style for African Americans. A visually spirited and intimate book full of photographs, letters, playbills, and drawings about the preeminent figures of the black Renaissance.

The New Negro Renaissance, was an artistic and literary movement spanning the years 1917 to 1932. Using The Power of Style as its template, "The Power Of Pride" is a visually spirited and intimate book full of photographs, letters, playbills, and drawings of the preeminent stylemakers of the Harlem Renaissance. Moving from the brownstones of Strivers Row in Harlem to the Negro Appreciation salons in Paris; the book focuses on seventeen Renaissance figures who exemplify the themes of race, fortitude, talent, and style, and whose strength of will and talent created a model for the emerging black middle class and subsequently all aspiring members of the black community.

Writers (Langston Hughes, Zora Neale Hurston, Wallace Thurman, Jessie Redmon Fauset, Nella Larsen, Dorothy West), entertainers (Josephine Baker, Bill "Bojangles" Robinson, Ethel Waters, Bessie Smith, Alberta Hunter, Florence Mills), patrons (A'Lelia Walker, Carl Van Vechten), leaders (James Weldon Johnson, Walter White) jazzmen (Edward Kennedy "Duke" Ellington, and Louis Armstrong). The work of each shared a common thread, their intent, as writer Ralph Ellison has articulated it, "to arouse the troubling suspicion that whatever else the true American is, he is also somehow black."

The text is lively and informative; the illustrations bring the subjects and the era to vivid life. "The Power of Pride" is beautiful and unique..
