... is the title of a new book published by Columbia University Press. Among Harrison's achievements, according to the publisher's blurb, was transforming "the 135th Street Public Library into an international center for research in Black culture."
A recent (Dec. 2008) review of the book says:
A familiar account of African-American culture during the first two decades of the 20th century frames it as a conflict between Booker T. Washington (champion of patient economic self-improvement within the existing framework of a racist society) and W.E.B. Du Bois (strategist of an active struggle for civil rights under the leadership of the black community’s “talented tenth”). The life and work of Hubert Harrison does not just complicate this picture; he breaks right through its frame.
Harrison's papers are archived at Columbia.
