Currently on view at the Amistad Research Center is “Yet Do I Marvel: Countee Cullen and the Harlem Renaissance,” a exhibition on the early twentieth century poet, his contemporaries, and the social and literary influences of the 1920s and 1930s that formed what began as “The New Negro Movement.” The exhibition, which largely draws upon Cullen’s personal papers and library housed at Amistad, is on display through December 20, 2012. Below are images of the exhibition.
And don’t forget…please join us for an enjoyable evening on October 29 at 6:00pm when biographer Charles Molesworth shares his experiences researching and writing about Countee Cullen and his times. A reception will begin the evening, followed by a book talk by Dr. Molesworth. Copies of And Bid Him Sing: A Biography of Countee Cullen will be available for purchase and signing. More information is at Amistad’s Facebook page.
