Remember Me to Harlem: The Letters of Langston Hughes and Carl Van Vechten, 1925-1964
Emily Bernard (ed)
These engaging letters paint an intimate portrait of two of the most important & influential figures of the Harlem Renaissance. Carl Van Vechten -- older, established, & white -- was at first a mentor to the younger, gifted, & black Langston Hughes. But the relationship quickly grew into a great friendship -- & for nearly four decades the two men wrote to each other constantly. They discussed literature & publishing; exchanged favorite blues lyrics; traded stories about parties & speakeasies; & gossiped about the people they knew in common -- James Baldwin, W.E.B. Du Bois, Ralph Ellison, Zora Neale Hurston, H.L. Mencken. “Shows us an unlikely friendship, one that is essential to our understanding of literature & race relations in 20th-century America.” Photos.
