With the appearance of the urban, modern, diverse "New Negro" in the Harlem Renaissance, writers and critics began a vibrant debate on the nature of African-American identity, community, and history. Nadell offers an illuminating new perspective on the period and the decades immediately following it in a fascinating exploration of the neglected role played by visual images of race in that debate.

MEDIA REVIEWS
must change the way in which we read familiar texts.
Martha Jane Nadell brings a fresh approach to the study of "the New Negro." Nadell's account explores the debate among African American artists about African American identity: what or who were the New Negroes, and how best to represent them?...Nadell should be applauded for her skilful handling of both visual and textual representations and for raising important, but hitherto neglected, questions about how these two forms interact, in a way that must change the way in which we read familiar texts.--Kate Dossett "Journal of American Studies "
