Great Literary Movement
The Voices of the Harlem Reniassance Forever® stamps feature 4 authors from a period of exuberant creativity.
The Harlem Renaissance of the 1920s was one of the great artistic and literary movements in American history. As African-American writers and artists pushed the boundaries of their identities and their art, they created a diverse body of work that explored their shared history and experience, embodied the spirit of the times, and let new and distinctive voices be heard. The four literary figures honored on these stamps highlight diverse facets of the Harlem Renaissance: writer, philosopher, educator, and arts advocate Alain Locke; novelist Nella Larsen; bibliophile and historian Arturo Alfonso Schomburg; and poet Anne Spencer.
The stamps feature stylized pastel portraits of the four honorees that incorporate African-inspired motifs as background elements. These design elements reflect the increased interest in African culture, history, and aesthetics shown by the writers and artists of the Harlem Renaissance.
The artist for these stamps was Gary Kelley. Art director Greg Breeding designed the stamps.
The Voices of the Harlem Renaissance stamps are being issued as Forever® stamps. These Forever stamps will always be equal in value to the current First-Class Mail® one-ounce price.
