It seems the more people read and learn about the jazz age Harlem Renaissance the more they want to read and learn about it. It’s not hard to see why when you look at how the heroes who made it real dealt with all the hot-button issues of the day and the innovative musical, social, literary, and technological trends too. This was when all night party clubbing really got started, the blues and jazz laid the groundwork for hip-hop, and blacks and whites started standing up against racism so people could just be people. This list contains some of the best digital eBooks on the subject. (The beautiful diva with the big cat is Josephine Baker)
