Considered to be a masterpiece of the Harlem Renaissance, a brief period during the 1920s, this book consists of sketches, poems and stories of rural and urban black African life that evoke images of smoke, sugar-cane, dusk and flame in the southern landscape, while the northern world is pictured as a harsher reality of asphalt streets.
