Jeffrey C. Stewart’s monumental The New Negro, The Life of Alain Locke, was the 2019 winner of the Pulitzer Prize for biography. Locke (1885-1954), an American writer, philosopher and educator, was the trailblazer of the Harlem Renaissance, which roughly coincided with the Charleston Renaissance. Stewart, a historian and professor of Black Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara, takes his title, The New Negro, from Locke’s seminal essay which propounded his belief that the pursuit of artistic excellence and physical mobility were the keys to black progress, rather than political protest. “A vitally important, astonishingly well researched, exhaustive biography of a brilliant, complex, flawed and utterly fascinating man.” (Wall Street Journal) Chaired by Bill Goldstein, writer and broadcaster.
