The Survey Graphic (Harlem number) March 1925
Survey Graphic was the monthly illustrated number of Survey magazine, the premier journal of social work in America in the 1920s. In November of 1924, the Survey's chief editor, Paul Kellogg, asked Alain Locke (then a professor of philosophy at Howard University) to design and edit a special issue devoted to the African American "Renaissance" underway in Harlem.

On March 13, 2002 First Lady Laura Bush hosted another in her series of events titled "White House Salute to America's Authors." This program, the second in the series, celebrated what the First Lady called "one of the richest literary periods in American history, the Harlem Renaissance, and the authors whose genius brought it to life."
Zora Neale Hurston
The Zora Neale Hurston Plays at the Library of Congress present a selection of ten plays written by Hurston (1891-1960), author, anthropologist, and folklorist. Deposited in the United States Copyright Office between 1925 and 1944, most of the plays remained unpublished and unproduced until they were rediscovered in the Copyright Deposit Drama Collection in 1997. The plays reflect Hurston's life experience, travels, and research, especially her study of folklore in the African-American South. Totaling 1,068 hundred images, the scripts are housed in the Library's Manuscript, Music, and Rare Books and Special Collections Divisions.
