    Harlem Renaissance

    A cultural movement of Black writers and artists was flourishing a century ago in uptown New York, and it’s being remembered now with various virtual events. As WNYC’s Sara Fishko tells us in this episode of Fishko Files, the Harlem Renaissance movement was rich with ideas.

    Emily Bernard is a professor at the University of Vermont and the editor of Remember Me to Harlem: The Letters of Langston Hughes and Carl Van Vechten.

    Harlem Renaissance 100 continues with its second, virtual phase. Next up: The Importance of Being Earnest, presented by the Harlem Shakespeare Festival, on July 26.

    A box set from the Library of Congress, Harlem Renaissance Novels, offers a deeper dive into the literature of the movement.

    Composer and arranger Johnny Mandel died last Monday at the age of 94. In the sixty years prior, he gave us standards such as “Emily” and “The Shadow of Your Smile,” and ushered in an era of jazz-inflected movies with his 1958 score for the film “I Want to Live.” WNYC’s Sara Fishko spoke to him about that period in this archival Fishko Files, produced in 2008.
